|Online Physician and Patient Referral|
A 93-year-old patient, who refused to get out of bed and was belligerent to the nursing home staff, changed his tune when our hospice chaplain took the time to listen to his story and make a personal connection with him. After learning that the patient formerly led a Catholic rosary group, the chaplain arranged for him to lead a similar rosary group at the nursing home, and he now leads others in prayer every week, joyful with his renewed life purpose. "I guess God had to let me get sick so I would end up here to lead this rosary group," he said. "It makes sense to me now."
