Love, Inspiration and Guidance for the Mountain Community
Stories from the Heart
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.”
Doug is a wizard with numbers. He’s been forecasting Mount Evans’ financial future since 1998.
“For people who don’t want to leave their mountain, our hospice care means a lot. It’s a gift to be in your own home, in your own bed with your family around. It’s really an honor to help them on their final journey.”
As the founder of Camp Comfort, Sallie knows that the key to camp is that children can look around and realize, ‘I’m not alone in my grief.’ “Seeing children evolve and open up during their weekend grief journey is amazing. The hugs, the conversation, and the smiles are worth everything. To provide such a safe and fun place where a child can be silent or crying in a support group and then be joyful when they are participating in an activity is truly heartwarming. Camp Comfort is simply a part of my heart.”
“Communication is the essence of human life”
-Dr. Janice Light
It’s easy to take basic communication skills for granted. When we can effortlessly communicate, we don’t give much thought to being able to express an idea through clear, articulate, understandable speech. But when we lose the ability to speak clearly and without effort, we instantly become aware of how large a part speech plays in our everyday lives. Losing the ability to speak can leave people feeling isolated and helpless.
