THE HOSPICE HEART
Lessons I have learned about life through death
My second book is now available on Amazon!!
THE HOSPICE HEART
A journey I didn't have a map for
I am super excited. 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. This book is my turn to give back. So many wonderful doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, caregivers and volunteers have shared their lessons with me, allowing me to blossom and grow as a hospice nurse. I have taken those tools and evolved. Now it's my turn to share them with all of you!!! You do not have to have a license to provide comfort and support at the bedside. I hope this book helps relieve any fears or misconceptions you might have relative to death. I also hope it touches your heart and makes you feel the feels. xoxox
Hello and welcome to my blog!
My name is Gabrielle Elise Jimenez and I am a Hospice Nurse. In my late 40's, I changed my whole life and went back to school to be a 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

I recently participated on a panel discussion at the Beautiful Dying Expo. It was a great event, that I am excited to attend again next year. I met wonderful people, who I admire and respect and hope to collaborate with in the future.
