Hospice professionals are dedicated people. Teams all over the world provide care for seriously ill patients. There are regulations and surveys to deal with, along with laws, ethics, and professional boundaries. Those realities guide how we care for our patients, but they’re not why we do the work in end of life care.
On the days when the realities of hospice weigh heavily on us, it helps to remember why we do this work. Walking alongside patients and their families is a privilege. There’s immeasurable personal and professional reward to provide care up to and at the end of life. So when you feel the burden of compassion fatigue or burnout, remember your why! You make a difference.
No matter who you are, or where you are in your hospice journey, you are The Heart of Hospice!
