About Going Home
“Going Home” is a new series that follows an inspiring team of nurses who help guide patients and loved ones on the ultimate journey – one of transition from this world to their forever home. It’s a race against time as the team must help their clients find peace and wrap up loose ends with compassion and dignity.
“This is a powerful and moving show about family, faith and relationships,” said Dan Merchant, the creator of the show. “It’s ultimately about compassion, empathy and forgiveness. Our hope is that people think deeper about their relationships and realize that every interaction can be a blessing.”Press Release

Mom Maven’s Thoughts
We have watched episodes 1 and 2. The words that come to mind to describe this show are beautiful, difficult, inspiring.
Beautiful-The care, love, and dignity that the clients and their families at Sunset House (hospice) receive as they prepare to graduate from this earthly life to heaven is just beautiful. I have had minimal experience with hospice care and that was in-hospital hospice, but I can only hope that most hospice is this beautiful
Difficult-I lost my dad 5 1/2 years ago and my mom almost 2 years ago. While I wasn’t with either of them when they passed, I was with dad for hours in ICU 2 days before he went home. My mom was in in-hospital hospice care for the last few days of her earthly life and I spent time with her the evening before she passed, she was ready to go home. Add those losses to the 11 others I lost in the last two years and it could all really weigh on me. Thankfully it doesn’t because I know that all 13 of my friends and loved ones loved Jesus and had accepted Him as their Lord and Savior long before they breathed their last breath.
Honestly I started getting jealous because so many of the most amazing, talented, loving people I know have all recently gone on to heaven, and there is one more, a teenager, who is currently in hospice care. While we do not grieve as those with no hope, we still grieve. Those of us left behind have to learn to move forward in the life God has called us to, sometimes with gaping holes left by those gone on before us. That is why it can be difficult. memories may flood back, tears may be shed. Thank God for His Blessed Hope!
Inspiring-I had a friend who attended the same church as me for 20 years. She was quiet, reserved, those of us who knew her, knew she had a heart of gold. God called her to be a hospice nurse and it was a calling she took very seriously. The character of Charley reminds me of Diana. She cared deeply for her clients and their families. She saw it as a privilege to usher them home. I say all this in past tense because Diana went home to be with Jesus a few years ago, she had a bad heart. It takes a very special person to be able to do that job well. I am inspired to be more like Charley, and Diana, after watching this series.
I really hope you will join Pure Flix and check out all they have to offer, especially “Going Home”.
