Our topic today is going to inspire you. We’re talking about the Angola Prison Hospice, an amazing project that involves inmates in the care of other terminally ill inmates. The work that is done within this tough Louisiana prison is transformational not only for the dying, but also for the inmates who become part of the interdisciplinary care team. You can find the documentary on the Angola Prison Hospice “Angola Prison Hospice: Opening the Door” on YouTube. The story will move you with its honest discussion of the suffering of dying inmates, and the innovative ways the prison has found to care for them.
