Introducing Lores Vlaminck’s seminar Care When There is No Cure for Patients with End Stage Diseases
Harold was a patient who had just months to live with metastatic colon cancer. During his lifetime, he had helped turn acres of farms into the community he loved. For Harold, this legacy was incredibly significant. To keep this tradition alive he produced huge picture posters and even utilized his woodworking talents to construct a whole town model. His main emphasis was on informing his caretakers about this legacy during his hospice visits; he didn’t wish to lose it with his death.
His carers started to videotape him relaying his village narrative, but that’s not enough for Harold. A local TV channel was introduced with his consent to concentrate on the model, photographs and tales behind them. The TV staff never said Harold was unwell. The footage on the local channel was exhilarating and peaceful. Soon later, he passed away, his legacy was maintained.
