The ‘Events’ Category
The winter months are finally behind us and the lush green grass, blossoming flowers, and budding trees have begun to reveal themselves as the summer months approach. Yesterday, a group of volunteers and staff members worked together to clean up our grounds by picking up trash, digging up weeds, laying down new soil, trimming trees and flower bushes, and raking leaves. Although it was a slightly chilly day, with the sun shining and mini Hershey’s chocolates and Kit-Kat bars to satisfy our taste buds, it made for an enjoyable and productive evening!
I would like to thank the following volunteers who participated in the Spring Cleanup: Gwen Timmons, Elizabeth Wayne (and her son), Kristi Link, and Erin Stilwell. Their willingness to help in any way is just one of the many reasons I am proud of our volunteers and all they do for Lake Superior Hospice and our community.

Kind of Care
National Nurses Week at Lake Superior Hospice means celebrating the excellent care, compassion, and commitment that each of our nurses display every day. Our nurses are exceptional in all that they do and their passion for helping our patients shines through their work. They go above and beyond for our patients and their families; whether it’s providing symptom management, support for the family, making arrangements to fulfill last wishes, and so much more! We are grateful to have an incredible group of nurses as members of our hospice team.
