Health care professionals witness more than their fair share of heartbreak. Caregivers in all areas of medicine see people at their worst — in pain, grief, fear. Sometimes, it’s the worst pain, the strongest grief and the darkest fear a person ever experienced. The cumulative toll this can take on a person is enough to prompt one to wonder, “Why do it?”
At a time when many are walking away from the health care profession, this is a question that demands a worthy answer. And many of our longest-serving staff at CMC provide it. They describe their work as a calling. They feel compelled to work in a field where they can help others. You likely are familiar with CMC’s mission statement: The heart of Catholic Medical Center is to carry out Christ’s healing mission of offering health, healing and hope to every individual who seeks our care.
Monadnock at Home Helps Area Seniors Live at Home
By Gary Bouchard
Soon July Fourth skies will light up with fireworks as people gather with family and friends to celebrate our nation’s Independence. For many people though, retaining their independence is a lifetime goal as well as a weekly struggle.
Sandra Faber, executive director of Catholic Charities NH’s Monadnock at Home program, works with dozens of volunteers to help Monadnock Region seniors continue to live independently in their own homes. “When I meet with seniors who are considering our services they typically tell me, ‘But I want to remain independent.’ I assure them, ‘We will help you to be independent, not take your independence away.’ The services we provide,” she says, “from transportation to check-in visits, to social activities, are designed to help people stay independent.”
