I'm very involved in the provision of hospice care in Canada, including direct service to patients in a residential care facility. I'm also helping to set up a new free-standing hospice in Ottawa, where I live, and I'm writing a research report on Death and Dying in Canada and its impact on families. Surprisingly, perhaps, my work gives me great hope and energy.
I'm especially inspired by the work I've see on this site by prisoners doing hospice work inside prisons. I'd love to see that happening in Canada.
