Video Poem: “Reflections of a Hospice Volunteer” (Hospice, Nursing Homes, Eldercare) 3:25 mins.

“Reflections of a Hospice Volunteer” is one of sixteen original poems included at the end of each chapter of "Becoming Dead Right: A Hospice Volunteer in Urban Nursing Homes.” With poems, stories, and general information, "Becoming Dead Right" explores hospice care, urban nursing homes, caregiving, dementia, death preparations, and bereavement. Strategies for improving eldercare and nursing homes are examined.

Dedicated hospice volunteers everywhere enhance quality of life during patients’ final days. This poem expresses the win-win experience of many volunteers.
