Hospice Workers Find Peace in Helping Patients Find Comfort At the End of Life
from The Washington Post
From Sept. 14:
It is 7:30 on a summer morning in a room overlooking the slate-gray, lapping waters of Lake Erie. Ten or so people, some just arriving at work, some finishing a night shift, sit silently on benches and in armchairs below stained-glass windows. A plump golden retriever named Linus, a therapy dog, wanders from one person to another, gratefully accepting their caresses. Kevin Dieter, a hospice-care physician with graying mustache and goatee, gently suggests they get started.
