Houston Hospice Celebrates National Hospice Month Through Stories of Comfort-Love-RespectHouston Hospice will celebrate National Hospice Month in November by highlighting employee experiences and delving into the human aspect of hospice care. The 2012 National Hospice and Palliative Care theme is Comfort-Love-Respect - something we see daily at Houston Hospice. Inspired by this theme we will be highlighting employees who will share their experiences with the work of hospice care.
The Comfort-Love-Respect theme embodies the spirit of hospice. The month is dedicated to bringing awareness to hospice care and reminds us that life matters. Hospice care happens because of skilled and compassionate hospice and palliative care professionals. These include physicians, nurses, social workers, counselors, hospice aides, clergy and volunteers.
Director of Bereavement Services at the Houston Hospice Marti Nelson, LCSW said, “I am drawn to the innate wisdom of the griever and the beauty of the natural and NORMAL grief response. I get to watch these bereaved family members come back to life again!” Additional employee profiles will be published through the Houston Hospice website during the month of November.
