• You help Iva to care about terminally ill people.

    After a diagnosis Milan’s wish was to die at home. His wife Dana and son Michal expected with big worries what the following weeks when they cannot help him will bring. The reality was different. Thanks to the Home Hospice of St. Lucie team the days went calmly, in complete trust. What helped? Empathy, kindness, goodness of nurses and doctors who regularly visited the family and accompanied them to painless, calm, and reconciled end. Though the family is mourning, the hospice’s services brought them energy from experience that a situation like this requires.


    I am a member of a team that is close to patients who decided to spend their last moments in home environment and to their families also. We secure professional palliative care so that there is dignity and we prevent the patient from suffering. For families we offer support and often our help is a condition so that they manage to care about the close one with as few worries as possible. This knowledge makes my job as a nurse a true mission.
