I am a Haitian American. Within the Haitian culture, although often not talked about, the concept of death is believed to be a sacred passage “to a better life.” I have the privilege of talking to clients about this sensitive topic.
I was very impressed with the company’s mission to ensure that the individual’s voice is heard and validated. Often, clients do not have the opportunity or feel empowered to have a voice in their treatment/care.
While I have had the opportunity to work for various agencies; what sets Vital Decisions apart is its commitment to helping clients make their end-of-life care preferences clear and accessible.
I enjoy helping others. Having the opportunity to help clients think and process specific elements surrounding his or her healthcare decisions; for me, it is a gift that has profound meaning.
Support from management is superb!!!! I am amazed by the support I have received from my coworkers and management.
