Care at Hospice Halifax is more than just clinical end-of-life care. It is also creating meaningful moments for patients and families to enjoy every last day. One patient this month, we will call him T, was always in such a great mood. They passed the time by completing puzzles and telling jokes. T told so many jokes we created a joke book in his honor. Here are some of our favourites:
CTA Cole: You have all the jokes done you?
T: Yeah you can call me Milla JOKEovich (referencing Milla Jovovich an actor)
CTA Cole *Finished cutting T’s toenails
T: Well it looks like we have deFEETed the problem!
Admin Amy: Brr, I am cold, going to shut the window because I have a chill!
T: Oh you got a chill? Good thing I am not giving you the cold shoulder!
Nurse answers: Hello, just one moment please *passes phone to T*
T: Sorry, that was just my assistant
