My husband and I arrived at my dying sister’s bedside in the Carberry Personal Care Home, taking our turn to sit vigil. She was already in a deep, peaceful sleep in her carefully made bed. Her room was spotless and tidy, her flowering plant tended, her beloved keepsakes neatly arranged. But what truly created the serenity we felt in that room was the soft, beautiful music.

A caregiver had thoughtfully set the TV to a music channel, The Spa, and we sat there with her, hour after hour, until she peacefully breathed her last breath.

Thank you, dear caregiver, and all caregivers who go the extra mile.
