A message from the author

Life is fragile and precious...
Nothing is guaranteed.
Make sure to live your fully, love fiercely, and practice kindness and compassion always. xo

 

My second book is now available on Amazon!!

THE HOSPICE HEART

A journey I didn't have a map for

As much as I loved writing Soft Landing, this book elicits something deeper inside...

I share a bit from my childhood, which indicates that early on I was destined to work in hospice. 


I hope this book helps relieve any fears or misconceptions you might have relative to death.

Hello and welcome to my blog!

My name is Gabrielle Elise Jimenez and I am a hospice nurse, and an end of life doula. In my late 40's, I changed my whole life and went back to school to be a hospice nurse. I am proud of myself for accomplishing this; it was not easy. I share my story in my first book "Soft Landing". I also share some patient stories, and lessons I have learned about life through death. 

I have learned so much from so many different people; doctors, nurses, caregivers, social workers, chaplains, volunteers,  and most of all from the patients I have cared for and the families I have supported. I have been given the most wonderful tools and I want to share them with each of you… I want to dig into my wonderful bag of love and give those gifts to you. I want to help you become a better care provider whether it is as a profession, or it is for someone you love who is nearing the end of their life.

My goal with this blog is to share my tips and tools, some inspiration, patient stories, life stories and most importantly help to remove that dark cloud that hovers over death. I want you to see what I see, which is love on so many levels, faith that will inspire you, and a death… that can be incredibly beautiful. I want to help you to provide a soft landing for the next person you will be present at the bedside for. xo

Here is a FB LIVE event I did with The Beautiful Dying Expo where I share some tips and tools: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=336244660841925
