So often in life we find ourselves in situations looking for that glimmer of light to lead the way out of the darkness; as without it we felt lost in our sense of navigation. It’s so wonderful when that light appears because it is not only the answer, but our usher and guide, so welcomed. There are times in life we need such a light, a guiding hand to usher us through unfamiliar terrain, one certainly being a terminal diagnosis. It can be scary, feel like a dark place. The options can feel so limited. Joining us to offer Some Light at the End, is Beth Cavenaugh, RN, BSN, CHPN, author of just that book. Beth is a certified hospice and palliative care nurse, Reiki practitioner, and educator with over 14 years of experience in caring for patients at the end of their life. Compassion, patient autonomy, and transparent communication are at the core of her care philosophy.
In this incredibly soul-enriching and deeply transparent hour, we discuss the all too familiar reality of grief, the many ways we can create meaningful end-of-life rituals, and we put the spotlight on hospice and how their care provided to patients can maximize quality of life and provide nurturing support for both the individual facing their own passing and their family.
Beth shares some of her many experiences with patients such as when the family may be ready for hospice and the patient isn’t and vice-versa, defines a “beautiful death,” what the role of being a caregiver is like, how to know when it is time for hospice support and even how the process works to make the decision to accept hospice services and so much more.
One thing is certain, more often than not when hospice nurses come into your home, facility or you to theirs, you’re going to feel like their “star camper of the week” because they love their patients and they lead with their hearts!
Beth’s book is a wonderful guide for those seeking Some Light at the End: Your Bedside Guide for Peaceful Palliative and Hospice Care. Beth’s experience and wisdom illuminates how we can find peace and beauty in death, instead of exhaustion and fear. Her book offers the empowerment everyone is seeking during the final stages of their beautiful life. You can purchase it on Amazon or her website at www.BethCavenaugh where I invite you to connect with her and learn more about her hospice workshops for groups and individuals, where she demystified death and dying so this powerful moment will be embraced as a normalized and celebrated event.
A must-listen power-hour of enlightyYOUment from beginning to end on a topic many of us can personally relate to and of course, know we will eventually face.
