Our Calling And Our Blessing

Our clinical team can reduce or alleviate a resident’s physical pain with a pill or a shot, but there are so many other forms of pain – loneliness, hopelessness, purposelessness that can be reduced or alleviated by our smiles, our love, our active listening, our prayers and our blessings.

Albert Schweitzer, discussing his life and its purpose once said “We must all die, but if I can save someone from days of torture, that is what I feel is my great and ever new privilege. Pain is a more terrible lord of mankind than even death itself.”

We can make a difference. This is our calling. This is our blessing.
