Description
This memoir chronicles a nurse's adventures in starting and directing a hospice and home care service in a remote area of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The time was 1982, when the concept of in-home hospice care was only beginning to be understood and accepted. The compassionate character of hospice nursing is revealed through accounts of this nurse's efforts to care for ill and dying people throughout a 2.000 square mile rural area. Her travels to isolated homes and villages steeped in Colorado mining history and the challenges of visiting patients during severe winters at 9,000 feet elevation reveal a tale of determination and an appreciation for frequent divine intervention. The essence of the book is in the valuable lessons taught and unknowingly bestowed by memorable patients and families, It is a story of a nurse's passion for the mountains and the people who live there and for a special kind of nursing in which the rewards far outweigh the inherent stresses and challenges.
