Internship with Heartland Hospice
Major: Integrative Studies As a hospice volunteer, I was asked to attend weekly Interdisciplinary Group meetings (IDG) to stay current on the status of patients. This included new patients, those who were nearing the end of life and those who had died since the previous meeting. I attended two senior expos where I was asked to assist in sharing information with the public about services provided by Heartland and to educate people about the importance of making end-of-life decisions before a health crisis or terminal diagnosis presents itself. Hospice care isn't only about dying--it's about fully living the remaining days of one's life. I was treated as a member of the team and was involved with home visits to patients and their families, as well as to families whose loved one had recently died. I was part of a small team which coordinated with a local grief support organization to develop a gardening project for children in mourning. This was a summer-long project in which children attended sessions to plant, tend and grow flowers and vegetables as a mechanism for grieving.
