Staff and volunteers at Los Alamos Visiting Nurses are taking advantage of November, National Hospice Month, to educate the community about hospice. Hospice, said executive director of Visiting Nurses Sarah Rochester, is more of a philosophy than a place and its about caring and sharing. Additionally, she said, it is more about living than dying. Hospice, Rochester said, promotes living to the last moment of your life and Visiting Nurses personnel will spread this message throughout the community during this month. Los Alamos Visiting Nurses has been operating for 34 years.
