Of all the cruelties inflicted by the pandemic, separating people from someone they love who is about to die has to have been among the most vicious. And what of people who received a life-altering diagnosis this year, or who are trying to adjust to life after the death of a parent or spouse?
Death is an uncomfortable subject. Many of us shy away from talking about it. Not Ryan Alexander, though: as Manager of Hospice Services he’s given the end-stages of life lots of thought.
Caring and compassion have always been trademark qualities of the many people who volunteer with the Community Care Health and Care Network’s Hospice Services.
The organization is offering the chance for new volunteers to get involved with helping to ease the journey of local residents facing serious illness, end of life, and grief and bereavement.
