“A lot of people ask me how I can do palliative care. Palliative care taught me how to change my frame of mind when it comes to dying. Rather than fearing it, I see it as a final stage in life where you try to make the best of the limited time you have left. As a nurse, I try to be the calm in the storm for the client. I try my best to provide the compassionate care they need to help them navigate through the end of life process.“
