The Poem was written by Primecare Health Ltd staff member Breedge Reid who feels very passionately about Palliative Care

If I am unable to speak to you
I can still hear you,
Talk to me I'm still here
We all live and we all die
Please make my journey run smoothly
Let me be surrounded by people, who care,
If it is the last thing you do for me let both my journey and end be filled with
dignity, respect and be pain free When you go home you can say to yourself Jessie
lived and died well and take pride in the part you played as a caring and
compassionate human being You never know when it may be your turn. Ask
yourself what would you want?
