hospice: speaking of eating cars and end of life issues....
ANYWAY, you will see below the amusing photos of me and my work and my large afternoon snack...just like I was saying yesterday! Inspired by Blondie, 30 some years ago.....but first, let me tell you these things:
We may be rejected for many reasons, but Penny and I are possibly moving along as therapy dog and person. YES, we will continue to visit the senior living center each week as we have for months. BUT we may also undergo training in hospicare. Hospice, as you know, is managing end of life issues for terminally ill patients. People who are in pain and can't really go anywhere. Last night I began what might be a long amount of training, which will include Penny, in hospicare. Or we will not make it into the program (Penny is super sweet, but not obedient or intelligent....HOWEVER, she is a champion cuddler and that is what is most needed...I mean, she sees a bed and she doesn't hesitate to jump in!)
So, basically, what is it like to work in hospicare? The team leader talks about it being very different from anything he ever thought it would be. If I think about it, I suppose I would be scared and nervous, but I am not. I am excited and I hope I am accepted. How can we appreciate life if we don't face death?
