I spent my whole working life in the health care field. For 52 years it was never about the work, it was always personal.
My husband and I spent the last 7 days of her life together sharing stories and memories, laughing, crying and cherishing every remaining moment. How honoured we felt.
Every time, I step through that front door, I get so much more back than I can ever give. People ask me, “how can you work there”, and I tell them every time… it’s such a beautiful place.
I started volunteering at Hospice Georgian Triangle in 2017. My career was in the healthcare field and I found it especially rewarding to care for palliative clients.
I am a retired nurse who spent many years as a Manager on the Medical Unit of our local hospital. This gave me first-hand experience observing families struggle with the dying process and resultant grief.
