Every winter, in preparation for bad weather days, PVMOW delivers "Blizzard Boxes" to each and every client. These boxes include a 5 day supply of shelf stable meals and are meant to cover those days when the roads are unsafe for our volunteers to travel due to severe winter weather conditions. This years boxes are being provided to each client with thanks from a private donation.
" A must-read for anyone concerned about seniors and the end of life experience."
- Jeanne Martin, director PVMOW
“A deeply affecting, urgently important book – one not just about dying and the limits of medicine but about living to the last with autonomy, dignity, and joy.” – Katherine Boo
“We have come to medicalize aging, frailty, and death, treating them as if they were just one more clinical problem to overcome. However, it is not only medicine that is needed in one’s declining years but life – a life with meaning, a life as rich and full as possible under the circumstances. Being Mortal is not only wise and deeply moving, it is an essential and insightful book for our times, as one would expect from Atul Gawande, one of our finest physician writers.” – Oliver Sacks
“American medicine, Being Mortal reminds us, has prepared itself for life but not for death. This is Atul Gawande’s most powerful – and moving – book.” – Malcolm Gladwell
