Helping to meet death unafraid

Helping to meet death unafraid

Published: Comments:

By Ashley Porter ·  3 mins · From Unsung

Death is a part of life we often try to avoid talking about. That is, until it’s forced in front of us, like it is for the many people diagnosed with a terminal illness.

But, if we can’t accept it ourselves, how can we help our friends and families through their heartbreaking journeys?

Nurse Susan Musgrove helps fill this gap, bringing  abundant care, love and joy to people facing death.

The community-funded Katie Rose Hospice welcomes terminally ill guests to spend their last chapter in a comfortable home-like environment, free of personal costs. It’s often a longed-for “holiday” from the impersonal bustle of hospitals. Loved ones can also stay as long as they like – four legged furry ones included.

Along with the many volunteers and other nurses, Susan soars beyond her call of duty as a nurse – becoming a true friend to the guests and their families.

Forming such strong relationships with guests knowing she will soon share in the family’s grief, takes very admirable strength. A strength I realised I didn’t have after meeting some of the charming and inspiring guests.

As one of the hospice’s families said, Susan is undoubtedly “an angel”.
