Jean’s Story
Patricia (Jean) Nelson was an independent and active woman. “My mom was always up for adventure and trying something new and different,” said Kris Steussy, Jean’s daughter. Countless anecdotes illustrate Jean’s boundless energy and zest for life. Her memorable moments are fondly remembered by family and friends as “Adventures with Jean.”

Jean was diagnosed with vascular dementia after a fall during a winter walk. As her disease progressed, Kris reached out to Hospice of the Red River Valley for extra support.

“Having Hospice staff to assist was just fabulous. They really listened and genuinely wanted to get to know my mom. This helped create a level of trust for my mom and us. Seeing mom get the extra care she needed with Hospice involved was a huge added benefit and a relief for us. Every single person I dealt with from Hospice of the Red River Valley was kind and compassionate.”
