Winter Returns

Spencer here – it has been a while and I thought I would share an update.

Winter in Big Bear February 2015

Winter returns! View from outside our office.

First off, winter is not over! We received about 8 inches around town! That being said, it’s a good thing we have access to DME supplies (Durable Medical Equipment, such as hospital beds, oxygen concentrators, etc)  in Big Bear, so we don’t need to grapple with deliveries from down the hill during winter conditions. Being the only local hospice provider, we’re still proud to be able to provide same-day admissions for anyone with an immediate need.



Bear Valley Hospice Office in Winter

Our office on the second floor, where we have our IDT meetings.

As we continue to grow in our second year of service, we’ve been having our regular interdisciplinary team (IDT) meetings. Over the course of these meetings, it has been great to better know our team and see habits and traditions develop. Our RN, for example, skis every morning of the week and gives us a snow report (I look forward to hearing how the fresh powder was today!).

Hopefully we’ll see some more snow before we shift gears into summer. Until then, enjoy the winter beauty! 🙂
