They offered me a mug of Sweet Potato and Squash soup and to top that off, pudding and custard…in a really warm bowl. That’s hospice, they look after visitors as well as the patients they’re visiting. We should be proud of our hospice service in Britain it’s highly regarded, world wide. I know of one doctor in charge of a hospice in California who came here years ago to learn all he could about what we do. He then went back to build a hospice system, in-patients and out-patients, which has in turn become a model for new services around the country. And what a humble man he is too.
That’s it really. The gentle humility one encounters in such places. Genuine care and attention to detail. People come, come in for awhile, and then go home again. They follow through on a treatment plan
