Nurse Jared Axen Makes Each Patient Special with a Serenade

Jared Axen is referred to as the “Angel sent from Heaven” by his patients at the Valencia Hospital. Jared is completely different from the other nurses you’ve seen. He doesn’t comfort his patients in the traditional way. He sings beautiful soothing songs to his patients. This is how he is able to connect with the patients on a deeper and more personal level.

On his blog, Jared writes, “hospice is not about giving up. It is about making those final months, weeks, days, and hours, the most meaningful.”
