June 12, 2019 – Thanks to Cecilia Brown for the great article in The Mining Journal about Bob Barry, our first Trillium House graduate. His story defines our mission at Trillium House that hospice is about living each day to fullest. Our success is because of the amazing staff, volunteers and community that support us in so many ways. We thank them all. https://www.miningjournal.net/…/trillium-house-celebrates-…/
We just said goodbye to Bob who has lived with us for some time. Bob is our first hospice graduate and he’s on the way to North Carolina to live with his brother’s family.
Because this community believed in creating a hospice home, Bob had a safe and comfortable place to receive his care. When Bob lived with us his condition went slowly from very bad to okay to good to “you don’t belong in hospice now”! His life limiting illness isn’t cured and won’t ever be; but all it is limiting now are his days and not his ability to enjoy them. We’re going to miss him but couldn’t be happier for Bob and his family.
