At what point does a caregiver cross the boundary between providing professional, compassionate care to getting too involved with her patients’ lives? That question is at the heart of the new novel, To Alice. The novel is about the dignity and grace of simple care — a bed bath, companionship, meals preparation, wound dressing, house cleaning, toenail clipping. Join us for this informal book talk and discussion about the importance of direct caregivers and interview with the author, Peter Cobb.
Peter Cobb was the executive director, for 33 years, of the VNAs of Vermont, the trade association of the State’s Visiting Nurse Associations. Before that he was a reporter, editor, grant administrator, mental health worker and soccer coach. To Alice is his first novel. He is now retired from full-time work and is a part-time correspondent for the Barre, Vermont Times Argus and Rutland Herald.
