With the crazy world we're in right now, it's nice to know that she had a place that cared so much.
Hospice Georgian Triangle offers a palliative respite care program aimed to keep people out of emergency rooms and to support caregivers struggling with burn out from providing care to their loved ones 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We are speechless at the generosity of our community of supporters every single day.
I kind of always knew I wanted to be a nurse after that. I just knew that was what I was meant to do.
Join the Hospice Georgian Triangle Board and contribute to the mission: “Excellent palliative care for all.”
I chose to be a PSW as I have always been interested in palliative care. In the 1980’s I spent time with friends who were at Casey House hospice in Toronto. Casey House was dedicated to men who had AIDS and whose families rejected them because they were opposed to their lifestyle.
I had cancer as a young child and spent much of my youth going to check ups and spending time in hospital. My nurses were amazing and I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything but nursing.
