“When I started working for Hospice Giving Foundation in 2003, my understanding about hospice and end-of-life care was limited at best. I didn’t think about it much, even though my mother died after enduring a long debilitating condition in the late 1980s. But working at the Foundation has changed all that. I see now how my mom and other loved ones and friends could have benefited so much from compassionate hospice care. Family members, who tirelessly drove her to appointments and cared for her, could have received help from volunteers. Starting conversations early about end-of-life doesn’t have to be morbid or scary but can be as easy as asking, ‘What things do you hope for the future?’ The mission of Hospice Giving Foundation is a matter of the heart for me, and is my reason for coming to work every day.”
