A Day at Work: Love’s Labor
By Cathy Moyer
About the Book
A DAY AT WORK describes the journey of one nurse’s day inside a long-term care facility. She not only has the remarkable medical skills needed to treat her patients physically but the tenderness and understanding for those suffering, showing them compassion during the roughest and, too often, final moments of their lives. The tender touch of a hand and a healing soul extends comfort to the aged and abandoned mortals of our world. Author Cathy Moyer beautiful, in some cases humorously, and, in many ways, heartbreakingly captures the life of not only the dedicated and tireless workers but the intimate moments of the residents and their families, and the powerful impact each person in the cycle can have on another.
