Caring For All

Caring for AllDuring a clinical rotation, nursing student Erika Hellstrom had a patient in failing health and preparing for palliative care, but his wife told Erica, “God gives us all a purpose and mine is taking care of him.”  Erika learned the importance of providing listening and caring to the family, not just the patient. “Remembering that we are called to love everyone is an opportunity we may miss. God calls us to love one another, not just the sick and poor, but all.”

Carolyn W. posted this comment: “I have taken the Journal for many years and find it so helpful.
