Publisher's Summary

Hospice nurse Derek Flores, RN, would often gaze at the family photos of his patients, wondering what these special people were like when they were young, healthy, and vibrant. These thoughts motivated Derek to reach out to surviving family members of former hospice patients from around the country, asking them to share "who their loved ones once were". They responded by sharing these wonderful life stories.

Each chapter is special and will touch your heart. Some who were written about lived extraordinary lives; others struggled on a daily basis. Included are stories of mothers, fathers, uncles, and aunts, and even a story of a young father who loved his family in an extraordinary way. The unexpected result of this project has been the emotional and spiritual healing for everyone involved in this project.

Have you had or are you currently in the middle of a hospice experience? Whether it’s caring for an elderly parent or a terminally ill spouse, losing someone you love is a life-changing experience. It affects family, friends, as well as hospice team members who provide end-of-life care.

Letters to a Hospice Nurse can help you process your own grief. It is best used in conjunction with its sister publication My Letter, as a comprehensive healing experience for individuals on their own or for those taking part in a hospice organization's bereavement program.

With My Letter, caregivers, family members, and friends can write a love letter to their lost family member, friend, or patient to help process their own grief. Hospice team members can also utilize Letters to a Hospice Nurse and My Letter to help their current hospice patients with "life review". Their letter can be left as a treasured gift to those they leave behind.

Derek J. Flores, RN, was recently a guest on the internationally broadcasted TV program The Doctors, where he shared his love for his patients and his expert knowledge of hospice care.
