Getting the news of terminal illness and finding comfort through hospice. A hospice nurse interview

Getting the news of terminal illness and finding comfort through hospice. A hospice nurse interview. Coping with terminal illness finding what comfort we can through hospice. Cheri discusses the importance of compassion, empathy and proper hospice care at the end. Also discussed are advanced directive, DNR (do not resuscitate) and the hospice care process. What is hospice? Hospice nurse interview on coping with terminal illness. This is a frank discussion with our neighbor Cheri who is a licenced Hospice Nurse. Below is a piece of prose that sounds chords from the depths of despair to the pinnacle of understanding and acceptance of what death can be. Gone From My Sight~ I am standing upon the seashore. A ship, at my side, spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other. Then, someone at my side says, "There, she is gone." Gone where? Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast, hull and spar as she was when she left my side. And, she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in me -- not in her. And, just at the moment when someone says, "There, she is gone," there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, "Here she comes!" And that is dying... ~Henry Van Dyke Farm Girl's calendars and more- https://www.etsy.com/shop/bansheemoon Farm Girl on Instagram- https://www.instagram.com/thebansheemoon/ Help support this channel- https://www.patreon.com/bansheemoon Join Farm Girl on Face Book-https://www.facebook.com/bansheemoongirl/ Follow me on Twitter- https://twitter.com/bansheesmoon Website- http://www.bansheemoon.com

I Took Care Of My Mother When She was Diagnosed with Stage 4 Terminal Cancer In Her Lungs, Liver & Lymph Nodes Till She Passed Away In 2009. It Taught Me To Cherish Each Day & To Travel as Much As I Can & never take anything for Granted & To Live Life Like their's no Tomorrow

I have a close friend that is in hospice at the moment due to intestinal cancer, I pray for her family every single day because it is painful to see what she goes thru every single day. Thank you for the info ma'am, and thank you for that accent because I absolutely love it.

I'm glad things like the poems and all their predictable anaologies and phrases can comfort people who suffered loss.

I have admired Exoman and Farm Girl for their Youtube content for quite a while! This video provides important information for many who were unaware of this service. I do have one unrelated question for Exoman. Why are you wearing a hat indoors and especially at the table?

Hi Guys; well you hit on a pretty strong subject for all. Death is something we don't like to talk about and it's always just around the corner. For some it comes sooner than others. When my wife passed away it was fairly quick as she had an illness that takes you quickly. The hard part is watching those we love slowly pass away and many thanks to people like your neighbor who may spend months and months with someone before they go. I think we all would like someone there the day we go and these folks help that need. TY for reminding us.

My mother passed away in 1996 and we had hospice come in. The best thing ever. They were SO good for my mother and us( her family). I CANNOT praise hospice enough for what they did to help. Thanks so much for bringing this subject up. It will most likely help a lot of family’s.

Hospice care workers are wonderful nessessary people. Having GOD in our lives makes end of live situation go many many times smoother for all involved. I have personally watched several people pass, and so much quieter and smoother when God is in the picture! May God bless you all. Ask him to be your personal savior and he makes every day life wonderful! PS<<< I love your humor! I really do enjoy your channel.

Hospice is truly so very GREAT. Lost my Father 6 years ago to Alzheimers. We couldn't stand not keeping him at home. Made a difficult journey much easier.

Tal Williams (9 days ago)
I hope all goes well for you guys. I know even thinking of hospice brings chills to anyone. But staying home with hospice is better than the nursing home anyday
Tal Williams (9 days ago)
Hospice nurse are the bomb. They are the best grief counselors too. Trust me they cry when your love ones die. Two years ago my father died. Although he was dying from many ailments he had stage two lung cancer. He had a pace maker and a defibrillator when the time came to turn the defibrillator our hospice nurse helped with stopping his suffering and turning it off.
Tal Williams (9 days ago)
Sorry he had stage four cancer.

Another hospice volunteer here...Hospice is a business for profit..Written into law in 1982 as part of Medicare, up to 5% of total care is required to be from volunteers. Why I need to document my time with my clients.. Highly recommend anyone...It's a bit like visiting your grandparents..and at times, I see myself in my clients...It's a unique experience and everyone I've worked with was very appreciative and supportive...I'm near Columbia..so not too far away from you guys.

Having volunteered at Veterans Hospital Geriatrics Ward which was next to hospice I understand the loss of watching these people pass a way. Most were quick but some were young men and women dying from wasting away problems, watching them and nurses acceptance of death.
