昔 こんなRobot映画が主人公の映画がありましたっけ... 相当前です。
I unexpectedly met someone who works with hospice patients.
As soon as I heard her job title, curiosity took over. “I can’t imagine how difficult your job must be,” I said, without thinking too much. “How tough is it to care for hospice patients in the middle of the Coronavirus?”
I didn’t know what to expect. But her response made me want to cry. For those caring for senior citizens in group homes, nursing homes, or hospice, the pandemic has only complicated their already emotionally-taxing work.
“It’s heartbreaking,” the hospice worker told me. “Many of the patients I’ve cared for for years have passed away during the lockdown. Some because of Coronavirus, but many of my patients are dying from loneliness.”
