“Singers sing, painters paint, and I am a hospice aide and I care.
I love it. It is what I do… It is what I have to do.”
Terry, a hospice aide
October is the month to celebrate personal support workers1 in several provinces in Canada. In the US, the contributions of hospice aides and certified nursing assistants are celebrated in November.
At Life and Death Matters, we join with health care teams and members of the public across North America to celebrate and give thanks to the incredible people who serve in these caregiving roles. I would like to take a few moments to talk about the many reasons to celebrate front-line health care workers.
