A former Executive Director of a hospice organization shares stories from her decades-long career and interactions with families, hospice team members and patients in this new book about the importance of time & life lessons released by Dog Ear Publishing.
As a little girl, Penny Davis helped her grandmother care for an ailing neighbor during a hot summer – one of a network of neighborly volunteers who helped care for the gravely ill woman. Although that act took place long before hospice became recognized as a level of care, it inspired Davis, who spent 45 years in health care herself. Her new book explores the world of hospice care, sharing stories from hospice team members, patients and their families as examples of love, wisdom, humor, friendship, resilience, compassion and courage.
