To the editor:
Dr. Deuell wrote a very nice piece praising the work of Hospice. I wanted to send in a response saying that I totally concur.
My mother is a long-term resident at Harrison House, and she gets wonderful care there. What makes it even better is the loving and nurturing care Mom gets from the Hospice Plus nurses that visit, as well as their wonderful chaplain.
At low times for me, Hospice has even managed to lift my spirits — a big job sometimes. It is difficult to see my mother going downhill everyday, yet the staff of Harrison House and the care of the Hospice Plus workers, those with boots on the ground, manage to keep us moving forward to a better time.
