I was glad to have the opportunity to show several of the Hospice Steering Committee members the construction progress on Cottage in the Meadow. They were pleased to see so many workers on-site working to keep the project on schedule.
With the framing just about done the final roofing over the public portion of the Cottage will proceed in the next week or so. Willette Cheatom, Steering Committee member, remarked upon seeing the patient rooms “they are so spacious and will be so nice for families to gather in around their loved one – they just exude a sense of peace”. With ten of the twelve patients suites facing south one can easily visualize the sun streaming through the windows and how lovely the meadow will be to look out upon. Dr. Tim Melhorn, Steering Committee chair said, “I was so impressed with the ingenuity of the layout design of the Cottage allowing a variety of different settings in which families can gather.”
