Pandemic Hope and Healing (Video 2:29)


                                  "The wound is not my fault. 
                             But the healing is my responsibility."


Healing the spirit has often been associated positively in healthcare by patients and healthcare providers. That perspective has been associated with successful aging and a better tolerance of physical and emotional stress. The ability to cope with serious diseases and with isolation is especially important in older adults.  


With all the death and sorrow that the pandemic has brought into our lives, it is important that we do not overlook the good it has brought. For many, the pandemic has improved our quality of life by teaching us to analyze better how we spend our time. Without planning to do so, we have come to realize what really matters, what we really need to live and what we can do without. Many people have learned the rewards of giving to others, the blessing of gratitude, and the hope of future possibilities. This video inspires with a pandemic message of hope and healing.

  4. It's amazing how those that have faith in miracles have an overall more positive response to the news that they have a terminal illness! Here at hospice Colorado Springs I'm always encouraging our team to put themselves in the shoes of the patients or their loved ones. I instantly see improvement in patient interaction and a desire to provide better care. I appreciate your post and will share it with our team!
