For a while now I’ve been wanting to write about what it feels like when our clients die. It’s just I’ve never felt quite expert enough to do so. I’ve always thought writing about Death was the province of long-serving hospice nurses or philosophers. Perhaps it is. There is something though about our jobs as geriatric care managers that pulls us into the lives of our clients so intimately that their deaths change us. I think it’s important for us and for our clients that we acknowledge this.
