James Weise - Our Heart is in the Home

James Weise

As an occupational therapist, I make sure our patients can function safely during everyday activities. The rewarding part of my job is keeping people in their own homes. As an organization Mount Evans has real heart and soul. They truly care about their patients, and I love being part of that. I work in many old historic towns and people have often been in their homes all their lives, sometimes for three generations. If I can help keep a patient in their own home, then I’ve made a difference.”

Emily Deutschmann - Our Heart is in the Home

Emily Deutschmann

Emily gives mountain residents their voice and helps them speak, think, and even swallow foods and liquids. “I am proud to help our mountain community in a variety of ways. Speech therapists have many roles outside of speech and language: educating families on disease processes, strengthening swallow function, and teaching memory strategies. My goal is always to put the needs of the resident and their family first.”

Karen Schutt, RN Volunteer - Our Heart is in the Home

Karen Schutt

After more than 50 years working as a Registered Nurse, 12 of them for Mount Evans, Karen sees her volunteer work at Mount Evans as part of her ministry to the Evergreen community. “My experience and knowledge as an RN is used to support our palliative care team. I make phone calls to patients and providers and obtain necessary documentation so our nurse practitioners and social workers can stay focused on our patients. Through phone calls with patients, I can help them understand their illness and support them regarding their life choices. It’s an honor to serve my community.

Abby Moles

“A lot of patients tell me how grateful they are. Often patients think that entering into hospice means they have to go into a facility. Our care allows them to keep their independence. It makes me feel good knowing I am there for them and that my care allows them to stay in their home and not be uprooted near the end of life.”
