I have for the most part been able to let go of one patient before I see another patient. This is easier to do since I work in hospice as I need to drive sometimes quite a distance between patients. The work is very powerful. I have found that end of life care I need to be intentional about letting go of the stories. I have tried to enhance my prayer life especially as I come home from work. I have lots of candles. Some are battery and some are real flame. I light them in honor of the patients and lift up their concerns to God. I leave them lit until I go to bed. This ritual seems to help me let go and remember God is bracing them.
