Abstract

In this narrative, a third-year medical student recounts an experience with a patient she had while accompanying hospice and palliative workers on home visits. It was a tragic scene to witness, but somehow she left with spirits light. The afternoon with this woman-who suffered from Alzheimer's Disease-stood out. The medical student still thinks about her to this day.
