Hospice - End Of Life


Hospice is the rest stop between heaven and earth
They care for you for all your worth
They are with you in your final days
Taking care of you in so many ways.
Relieving many burdens, and helping family and friends
Consoling them till the end.
The care givers are with them thru their pains
And they don’t do it for fortune or fame.
Finding care at the end of life
For a husband, sister, brother, or wife
Or a family member who may be alone or in pain
When needing help there is no shame.
They are health professionals and volunteers
Who help the dying from their fears!
It takes a special kind of person to help others
In their hours of need, and on their help the dying do feed.
A little smile, a kind word, a gentle hand
Are things that they understand!
Let them leave this world with a mind full of memories
And a heart full of love, given from you as they travel above.

    The services rendered by hospices are to be extolled! Many volunteers are ready to give a little relief to those dying in misery and loneliness! Old and young, all of us have to take that final cruise! If we are a sourse of relief to the departing ones, someone will give love and relief to us during our last days! A great write! !

    This is very touching and reaches deep into the innermost parts of
    the heart and soul. Caregivers play a very vital part in the care of loved
    ones. They too sometimes need a little respite from this constant attention
    to a love one or person that need there help. Hospice plays a very important
    role in this. They are there with no expectation of reciprocation for their love, care
    and devotion. Even there is dignity in the final stages of life. Truly inspiring Lewis (Report) Reply
