Isolation is tough on everyone. People are tired. Many of us feel like we're running an ultramarathon, and we have no idea where the end lies.
During this time, people who receive a six-month prognosis know they won't outlive the pandemic. That realization has led many hospice professionals to redouble their efforts.
We have vital work to do.
