She was socially active and was involved in caring for differently-abled children back when she worked. Now
she is retired and feels that she has lost her purpose and her willingness to
enjoy her life. Her entire life routine became dominated by hospital visits and
conversations with her treating doctor.
She wished she would be
able to enjoy a day by the sea and longed to have a walk along the beach. The
Hospice Egypt team wanted to make her wish come true, and decided to take her to
Ismailia beach. The Hospice Egypt team chose a location that is not too far away from her
home, as she complained of back pain and long journeys increased her aches.
No one can imagine the
patient’s happiness or could suspect that she was such a confident swimmer! She
walked on the sand with her granddaughter in hand and they played together
joyfully. It was a day-long trip with a nice sea food lunch and even our team
found it utterly beautiful and different.
