Hospice is for Living 

The following essay was written by Keri Linardi, RN, BSN, PHN, CHPCA, Chief Clinical Officer of RVNAhealth. Keri is, has been, and always will be a hospice nurse -- in addition to the other roles she assumes. Hospice care is part of Keri’s being, part of her heart and the key to how she approaches her life.


 

This month, November, is Hospice and Palliative Care Month. In her words below, Keri shares her perspective on how hospice has impacted her and her children’s lives, and what we can do this month to plan for our own futures.

Children raised in the home of a hospice nurse, like me, live in a world where death and dying, and ending suffering are talked about freely. During my years of night shifts, my young children would ask over breakfast, when I returned home, how many people had died last night, and we would talk about the beautiful deaths I was privileged to bear witness to.

Some of the stories were funny, like the husband who called me when his wife had passed in the middle of the night, only for me to discover, when I touched her and she sat up, that she was still very much with us. To the ones that touched too close to home, like the children near to my own children’s ages, so that when I went to the car after leaving their homes, I sobbed uncontrollably for what seemed like forever, for a life lost too soon and for families who would have holes in their hearts that would never be repaired, just healed with memories over time.

We are a country that has plans for everything from birth, to vacations, yet we don’t plan for our own mortality. Dying sneaks up on families and throws them into decision making in moments of crisis -- a time when decisions should not be made!

Being a child of a hospice nurse is a double-edged sword: we never hang up the phone without saying ‘I love you;’ I have never sweated the small stuff with them, you want magenta hair?, it’s your head, go for it! The flip side is we talk about mortality – particularly my own -- over family dinners. This bothers my children a little, now ages 22, 19 and 13, but I need them to understand in simple terms what my wishes are if anything were to happen to me, and I need them to know that they will not be making decisions but simply honoring my wishes, decisions I have already made. They also fully understand that dying is a natural part of living, the circle of life.

In times of crisis, these ‘already-had conversations’ can be the greatest gift you give your loved ones, the gift of them knowing exactly what you would want to do. The gift of them knowing that they are not making the decisions for you when you aren’t able, they are honoring you one last time by following your wishes.

As a hospice nurse, who has seen families grappling with decisions at critical times, this is a gift I would like everyone to give their loved ones.

But we aren’t there yet.

In this country we have disparities in care that interfere with individuals’ abilities to access hospice care when it is needed most. A study from Duke University in 2018 outlines that African Americans, 13.4% of the population, make up only 8% of hospice patients in America and are more likely to suffer from untreated pain; Hispanic patients, who represent 18.3% of the US population, make up 7% of hospice patients nationally. There are cultural barriers that interfere with their access to hospice care.

We need to work together to change this and to provide culturally competent care at the right time – and we need to dispel the many myths around hospice care.

The hospice Medicare benefit is a six-month – approximately 180 day -- benefit of care that provides support from a whole team of professionals who wrap themselves around the patient and family to help them through one of the most challenging times of their lives. In my 26 years of nursing, I have never had a family tell me they came on to hospice too soon. I have had many families tell me, “If I had only known what hospice was, I would have called sooner.”

Despite the 180-day benefit, the national average length of stay for hospice care in the country right now is 21.5 days; for the state of Connecticut it is 14 days. This means that as a state, we aren’t doing a very good job at acknowledging life-limiting conditions head on — in a direct, kind, caring manner. We are introducing hospice care too late in the process and we are denying patients and their families care, comfort and treasured time when they need it the most.

Often when hospice is offered as an option, it is presented in negative terms – “There isn’t anything more to do;” Do not resuscitate,” -- when in fact there is a lot of living and a lot of joy that occurs in hospice.

When life-limiting conditions occur, we in hospice care talk about allowing natural deaths, managing symptoms, and living every day to its fullest. Imagine if you knew you only had six months left to live -- would you do anything differently?

Hospice care has filled my cup these past 20 plus years in nursing. I am appreciative and 

grateful to the patients whose hands I have held; to those whose windows I have gazed out of, together enjoying their favorite hydrangeas; the families whose strength and grace I have marveled at as they cared for their loved ones through to the end. The kindness they have shown me as guests in their home.

I am amazed daily at the wonderful team of hospice people at RVNAhealth that come to work and give of themselves every day for our community and patients and families. And to you, our RVNAhealth hospice families. I am in awe of you and thank you for allowing us to be guests in your home and into your lives during this very private time. I honor you during this special month.

In closing, I would encourage anyone who has not yet started their Advanced Care Planning conversations to use this November as your springboard to make the move! Start the conversation about Advanced Care Planning, visit our hospice and palliative care team at RVNAhealth. Let us help you start the conversation during non-crisis times. We have educational handouts to guide you, as well as team members to speak with. Nobody has ever regretted the decision to plan in advance. On the contrary. It’s a gift to yourselves and your loved ones.

Middle School at RA: Learning How to Learn, Open House Nov. 2 https://news.hamlethub.com/lewisboro/places/2103-middle-school-at-ra-learning-how-to-learn-open-house-nov-22103-middle-school-at-ra-learning-how-to-learn-open-house-nov-2 https://news.hamlethub.com/lewisboro/places/2103-middle-school-at-ra-learning-how-to-learn-open-house-nov-22103-middle-school-at-ra-learning-how-to-learn-open-house-nov-2

Grades 6-8 Students Learn How to Learn at RA

Middle School is a pivotal time in a child’s life. These formative years set the foundation for who a child will become, emotionally and intellectually. Our Grades 6-8 program is a truly comprehensive educational experience, designed specifically to develop the whole child, and is delivered by faculty who understand and celebrate this developmental stage in a child’s life. Their great passion is knowing their students as individuals within our vibrant community.

Our students engage in forward-thinking, lifeworthy educational experiences that develop essential critical thinking, reading, writing, and public speaking skills. Our dynamic teachers encourage risk-taking and nurture the collaborative, creative, and leadership skills that are in demand. And yet, old-fashioned kindness informs who we are and what we do as a community. Students rise to their authentic selves and have the self-assuredness to not just ask “Why?” but to ask “Why not?” They graduate prepared for success in even the most challenging high school programs and beyond.

We understand how middle schoolers learn and we find it very exciting!

K-8 By Design

The continuity of our K-8 model provides a safe place away from the distractions and pressures of high school so that students develop self-esteem as they meet challenges and become confident role models who contribute to their athletic teams, peers, and communities.

Intentionally Connected Learning

A child’s body and mind develop more rapidly during early adolescence than at any other stage other than the first two years of life. Guided by our Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning, we intentionally design interdisciplinary educational experiences that speak directly to the experience of a middle schooler using themes such as “change.” Learning that is not siloed, but intentionally relational allows students to make connections, consider multiple perspectives, and deepen their understanding.

Learning How to Learn

Too often students are given information, instructions, and objectives, and then receive grades without ever being asked to think about learning. We believe education is more than a series of tests and a body of knowledge to memorize. At a time when students are becoming aware of their own thoughts and those of others, RA MS students learn how to construct well-written essays, advocate for their ideas around a Harkness table, and through our public speaking program, deliver remarks with confidence and poise. They learn how to learn in a joyful and engaging academic environment and in the context of supportive and caring relationships with their teachers and peers.

Leadership and Independence

Our teachers partner with our students while respecting their heightened need for independence. We trust our middle schoolers to problem-solve and to lead. They are provided with many opportunities, from Service Learning, to partnering with their Kindergarten buddies, so that they may exercise these skills and become active change agents.

Authentically Self-Assured Students

Individualized instruction allows students to take risks, question the world around them, and become strong, independent thinkers. Our Middle School students blossom as hidden talents unfold and confidence grows through participation in one of our 14 different sports teams, electives, technology, band, drama, chorus, visual and digital arts. Students are taught to become allies to those who need help and our Wellness Program provides them with information they need to build healthy relationships, make sound decisions, and have a positive self-image.

RA students are challenged to pursue excellence in all of their endeavors. They do so with the support of dynamic teachers and a kind community. They learn how to learn and as they discover the world, they discover themselves. They graduate as authentically self-assured students prepared for success in even the most challenging high school programs and beyond.

Attend our Nov. 2 Open House for students entering Grades 4-8. Parents can enjoy learning about our Middle School program, meeting administrators and touring RA’s facilities. Students will take part in an aerodynamic design project in our beautiful makerspace. After learning about flight, students create a cardboard flyer, and shape it on a laser cutter. Set a new flight record as we test all the flyers!
