I have been working at Serenity Hospice (More than a year)
work as part of a team of experts in order to make sure every patient’s needs are met fully. You will work together in ensuring the patient and their family are comfortable and that they have all the information they need as well. Your role is as much about education as what it is about caring, providing people with a greater understanding about what is happening to them or someone they love. You will be a true advocate for each and every patient that comes under your care.
will be helping people who are dying, giving them end-of-life care. This means that you will have to deal with death on a very regular basis. Because you spend so much time caring for the patients before they die, you will have a sense of attachment to them. As a result, the loss can be felt very strongly and this is certainly difficult to cope with. Your role is to make someone as comfortable as possible, and to counsel and guide their loved ones until the patient passes away.
