As a volunteer, I’ve slowly accepted that senior citizens can have a difficult time adjusting to life outside the context of their family’s home. Not to mention, terminal ill patients: the knowledge (in whatever level or form) of facing your last days can be quite lonely. Through Media Cause, a few weeks ago I discovered Hospice Journey, a non-profit organization that enables an interactive way of allowing a patient’s loved ones (or the patient him or herself) to “share stories, to support one another, and to express our gratitude and love”.
When supported by the love of family and friends, facing serious illness can be an opportunity to honor and celebrate the life of someone important to us.
Here is a more in-depth look at what Hospice Journey is all about.
