Regarding the blog entry of First Meeting…
Another perspective of that first meeting is the loss of privacy. A viewer commented on people coming into their family’s home was more of an invasion.
It’s true, hospice team members are more than visitors. They are guest’s that come in to your personal space, ask private information and attempt to graciously care for intimate matters of your body.
My hope is that a client will quickly build trust in their nurse, bath aide, social worker and care givers. Trying to help people achieve their goals at end of life is a private matter, but out of necessity becomes a team effort.
