This post is part of San Diego Hospice’s series, sharing the stories that reflect the experiences of those impacted by, or living with, a serious illness. This series will be updated monthly. Feel free to share your thoughts with us.
With the recent World Hospice & Palliative Care Day on Saturday, October 8, and the upcoming National Hospice and Palliative Care Month in November, what better time than now to take a moment to reflect on all of the positive things hospice and palliative care has to offer.
In honor of these recognition events, San Diego Hospice and The Institute for Palliative Medicine invites you to join the global hospice and palliative care community to share your supportive stories, thoughts and memories about hospice and palliative care through a global conversation online using the hashtag #WeAreHospice to connect via Twitter.
The goal is to spread positive awareness and encourage a sense of community among peers, patients and caregivers, bringing everyone together to remember what we are ultimately here for in the end.
This is the start to many opportunities down the road to spread the good news about hospice and palliative care. You can find us online @SanDiegoHospice and @PalliativeCare to join the conversation about why #WeAreHospice.
