“Working for hospice of the Midwest has been one of the best decisions of my life. I feel my medical background (medical assistant, HCA, CNA, CMA) has prepared me for the role of a hospice aide.
I love the one-on-one contact and listening to clients’ stories about their life experiences. I especially enjoy the stories our veterans share with me. My goal for each visit is to make each patient’s day just a little better and brighter. I always rejoice when some patients’ health improves, and they are discharged from hospice. Usually though, I help them and their loved ones through the dying process.
Due to this virus affecting family visitations, I feel my job is more important than ever. I may be patient’s last contact before they gain their angel wings. The relationships we develop as caregivers becomes very important.
It is a privilege and honor to work with our amazing team, who truly cares about our clients and each other. If someone is sick or schedules need covered, teammates are quick to respond. With dedication, compassion and a caring attitude, I truly feel I make a difference at Hospice of the Midwest.”
