Letter to the editor: Home Health workers backed

I have been dismayed about recent pieces about the discontent within Addison County Home Health and Hospice. My husband and I moved here in 2004 to be near our daughter. Soon after, he entered Porter Nursing Home. In 2005 he passed away. The night he died a dedicated Hospice worker was reading to him. I soon received comfort from a hospice grief group.
Now that I am in my 80s I receive help from Home Health. Never have I heard a word of discontent from the nurses and aides who help me. They are competent, kind, thoughtful, and go out of their way to make me comfortable. I’m always happy and content when they leave.
I realize change is necessary to keep an organization vital. However, change without respect for the past and present ideas and work that has made an organization successful is nonproductive. All who are involved in the changes should be part of those changes. They should be acknowledged for their past work and respected for their input. That way changes will be welcomed and more successful.
It is my hope that the new administration will embrace that policy.
Miriam Hardy
