People say to me ‘oh, it must be really, really morbid’, but I say no, what you find in a hospice is exactly what you’d find in a family home. There will be laughter and there will be tears, there will be happiness and sadness – those four ingredients make up the hospice, as they do your family home. You are going to hear laughter from one family, then another who are in tears because someone’s dying. You don’t deny the person laughing the chance to laugh, because that might be their last laugh. The family in tears also acknowledge that, because probably two days before, they were laughing as well. People generally acknowledge that they’re all travelling the same journey, but at different times and at a different pace.
