Pikes Peak Hospice Palliative Care

This isn t the easiest place to write a review of because I just lost my dad there a couple days ago. But for anyone else that might have to go through something that hard, this place is amazing.

It s located on the 4th floor of the Medical Center and has an incredible staff, many of whom are volunteers with personal experiences there. The social worker and chaplain that came to speak with my mom were absolutely incredible and made things so much easier for her. They even help to set up things for after someone passes, which I know I appreciated because I had no idea what to do.

My sister and I spent a lot of time walking around the floor and there are beautiful pieces of art everywhere along with two sitting areas, each with a piano and small aviary (with finches and doves in it). It was just before Christmas so they also had trees and decorations up.

There is a cafeteria on the 5th floor (check the hours because it s not open all the time) that gives a discount to family members of someone in the hospice. And they have a pretty good selection of food too.

I had to telecommute while I was there, and the hospice offers a wifi just for family members to use. You just have to ask the front desk for the password.

These are a great bunch of people that made the hardest day of my life much easier to deal with. In the end when you re loved one passes, they even place a rose on the door. It s a small thing, but means a lot at the time.

Situations like this always leave me wishing there was a ZERO star rating. I had a terrible experience with Pikes Peak Hospice. There are some great nurses there, Tangee is really, really compassionate and knowledgeable. Several other day shift folks are great. BUT, if you stay the night with your loved one you will see a night shift that could care less if you end up being the one to care for your loved one. They certainly won t move at anything more than a snails pace to respond to a call light. They were deplorable.

However, it s the saleswoman Mimi that was really despicable. She put on a high pressure sales pitch that used car salesmen would be in awe of. She mentioned on numerous occasions that right now we have a bed open , making it sound like at any moment they might fill up and a bed would not be available any longer. She also refused to let us call and talk to the charge nurse and ask some detailed questions to someone who actually knew what kind of care was provided. Once we got in, there were probably 12 beds available, so it was abundantly clear that she was preying on us in order to close a deal. Here we are, with our father in the hospital on his way to dying and all Mimi cares about is selling us a bed. Enjoy that commission Mimi, I hope it buys you a lot of fans as you rot in hell.

Slieve Donard (via the Glen River) – Northern Ireland s Highest Peak

#slieve donard hotel

#

Slieve Donard (via Glen River)

Route Description

Leave the car park in Donard Park heading towards the mountain and follow the Glen River uphill through old woodland of Scots Pine, Oak and Birch. At the first of 3 bridges, cross to the opposite bank.

Continue uphill through the forest, above a deep cut riverbed, for about 400m until another bridge is reached. The riverbank overhangs along this section so extra care is needed.

At this point cross back to the left hand side and resume journey uphill through the trees.

At the next bridge continue across the forest road and onto the rough track heading up towards the mountains, with thick forest on right (fenced), until a gate and stile is reached.

Cross the stile and follow the track above the river for about 2kms, heading towards the saddle between Donard and Commedagh.

At this point, the path crosses the river and continues uphill to the ‘Saddle’ where it meets the Mourne Wall.

At the Mourne Wall turn left and follow the wall steeply uphill towards the summit.

From the summit return by the same route, staying close to the wall until the Saddle is reached again. The cliffs on the north side of Donard known as Eagle Rocks should be avoided by walkers since the approaches are steep.

Return to Donard Park following the line of the Glen River.

Getting to the Start

Follow the one way system to the south end of Newcastle main street. Donard Car Park has ample parking.

Accessibility Grade

Managed to get to the top of Slieve Donard today. Still some snow against the wall.loads of couples climbing which was nice to see. It is also such a really quite place when the large groups have disappeared. Went from bloody bridge, first time so I do not know the Newcastle car park route. I decided against fell running it and it took me 7.20 11.10kms. my pace trebles backwards once I hit a hill. The view at the top was amazing, the sea was flat calm, Dublin, the sugar loaf, Scotland, isle of Man and Belfast and all the surrounding mountains visible. Although there are boggy areas, I do not know if boots which pull the legs off you are better than a decent pair of trainers, runners or gutties depending where you are from

My first ever proper hill/mountain walk, and my 47 year old knees are showing their age. The forest stage at the start is tougher than you would imagine, the next section is fine, the hike to the saddle isn’t easy and the final ascent along the wall required a good few short breaks. That being said, it was a wonderful experience filled with fabulous views and friendly hikers. I had hoped for a bit of cloud to move in as I reached the summit and the weather didn’t let me down. It went from clear skies to a downpour and 20m visibility in a heartbeat. Very glad to have decent waterproof clothing in the rucksack. All in all a great day. I will be back.
