Trish Rux is a Registered Nurse with certification in Hospice and Palliative Care. A Registered Nurse since 1982, Trish has over seven years of experience in an inpatient Hospice unit. She calls becoming a nurse “one of the best decisions I ever made.”

Trish brings certifications in Healing Touch and Mindfulness Meditation to her work with clients in a holistic approach to care. She attends to the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual realms when caring for clients. She will assist you in defining your wishes and offers care before, during and after death. Services may include practical planning, vigil, care for the body after death and bereavement care.

Most importantly, Trish sees working with the dying as a sacred calling.

Trish offers a background rich in study of death and dying and experience at the bedside of hundreds of dying people. This experience allows her to understand the physiological changes that occur and to recognize the comfort needs of each individual. Offering guided imagery, Healing Touch, relaxation breathing and recommendations for medical interventions, her caring presence and support are available as much or as little as needed during the end of life to the client and family.
