According to the Hospice’s Candice Cook, the new resources are available for check-out to anyone in the community.  A list of the books in the loaner library will be available at the High Country Healthcare Hospice office, your local library, and online at

Hospice Chaplain Virginia Peurifoy said, “We were able to purchase dozens of books for every age group, including children, to assist families and friends through a natural, but difficult time in their lives.”  Bereavement Coordinator Jennifer Johnson said, “The response to the library has been wonderful.  We welcome you to drop by our office and check out our hospice library.”

Cook said the High Country Hospice works closely with the school system, the Council on Aging, area hospitals, healthcare providers, and community churches in providing information on death and dying as well as on grief support services.
