The work life journey of End-of-Life care in the workplace
Many years ago, heading into the newsroom when I was a rookie TV reporter, I was greeted by the remnants of a dramatic scene; a workplace nightmare. One of our managers, a workaholic in his early sixties, had just had a heart attack and died in the upstairs lunch room in front of a vending machine. Work life balance wasn’t his thing, nor was a healthy diet.
This man was dedicated to his craft. He covered three wars, witnessed Watergate, saw a president resign and a country brought to its knees during Vietnam. A lover of current events, he ate, lived and breathed political news. But he didn’t do much to care for himself. Turned out, he had a terminal illness that no one knew about. He had simply stopped taking care of himself, but wanted to keep working.
