Press Release 5-7-18
Nurses are a special breed of people. They get up in the morning or in the evening and go to work with one simple, yet profound purpose in mind: “I will care for you.” And if you asked what the most important tool in their workday is, every great and committed nurse would surely answer, “My heart.” It is the heart of the nurse that execute the doctor’s orders with the dedication to their craft and the desire for their patient to have the best outcome.
The poet Maya Angelou wrote “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. This is true of the nursing staff of Hospice with Grace. Our families rarely speak of the resources the social worker suggested or the prayer the chaplain said, but they consistently talk about the care and love given to their loved one by you.
To our amazing nurses Aisha, Dacia, Sheena, Jackie, Lolanda, Sonia, Chandi, Elizabeth, Heidi, Norma, Renee, Ollie, Queen, Sherie, Demetria, Kevin, Karla, Dee, Susan, and Vanessa, Hospice With Grace salutes you and say thank you for your love and compassion which is on call 24/7.
Lastly, let all of us not forget that we are on the journey with people in their life story; we are privileged to be invited along to participate in their last chapter.
