Montego Bay – Day 3

Our team came to Montego Bay to teach healthy behaviors, from dental hygeine to breast health to factors that affect blood pressure and blood sugar.  Today, we put the teaching aside and focused on simply spending time with our patients, listening to their stories.

Many of our patients today were in a nursing home/hospice facility.  Their health was failing, but they shared the common thread of choosing to have a positive outlook on life.  They talked with us, prayed with us, laughed with us, and even danced with us.  Spending time with our patients allowed us to see them as people instead of as a diagnosis, and this reinforced to us the importance of caring for the whole health of our patients.

More from Montego Bay tomorrow…
