Last week in Britain a beloved young palliative care nurse died suddenly. A year ago she wrote a blog post listing 5 things she’d learned from her dying patients. Our nurses, PSWs & care volunteers at The Bridge Hospice are keepers of wisdom like this, and we listen to them. R.I.P. Kimberley, and thank you. Here’s her post.
FIVE THINGS I’VE LEARNT FROM NURSING THE DYING, By Kimberley St John
1. We take our health for granted. I am so grateful to be able to run up the stairs.
2. Music, touch, scents & tastes are often the most effective way of communicating with people who are very close to death. The little things matter.
3. Most people don’t have fancy bucket lists. For many it’s being at home or having fish & chips.
4. It’s important to think about what you would or wouldn’t want at the end of your life. I know that I wouldn’t want intensive treatment if it wouldn’t help me. I have written it down and told my family in case they have to make decisions for me.
5. Don’t delay anything that is important to you. I have known people to put off marriage, a special trip, making up with a relative. None of us know how much time we have. Use it wisely.
Such sad news – Kimberley St John died suddenly and unexpectedly last week.
