“Imagine having nobody come visit you while you’re on your deathbed. If me doing this gives them the little hope they need for a better end, a better afterlife, then I have no issues dealing with this hollowness I feel every time I’m exposed to a situation like this.” Health workers around the globe deserve gratitude and support as abandoned senior citizens find solace in their arms in what are their last days, abandoned and alone.
As millions of lives are threatened by the current situation, death is a reality faced by many on a daily basis. Aged care staff on the corona virus front line are battling their own grief with tremendous courage, ingenuity, and determination as thousands of senior citizens have been battling COVID-19 globally.
