Get to Know…Fritzi Redgrave, RN

| By Jodi Horton

Editor’s Note: This column features people who keep things running behind the scenes and those who are on the “front lines,” providing care to our patients. All of the Casa employees and volunteers have been asked to answer five questions. The first three emphasize their hospice care work and the last two give you just a little taste of who they are besides a hospice worker or volunteer.

Q: What brought you to hospice care?

A: It was an accident. I was looking for a home health position, but I had done end-of-life care on the Hopi reservation so I decided to give hospice a try.

Q: What is your goal in your position?

A: My goal is simply to give my very best to my patients and my fellow employees.

Q: In your opinion, what value does hospice care bring to healthcare?

A: It provides a gentle and supportive end to one’s life.

Q: What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

A: Travel

Q: When you were a little kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A: I have wanted to be a nurse since I got my first doctor kit at about age 3. I had to wait 47 years to get my degree, however.

Two bonus questions!

Q: What is one thing on your bucket list?

A: My bucket list is simply to see as much of the world as I can before I die and to introduce my grandkids to travel.

Q: If you could meet anyone, alive or dead, who would it be and why?

A: I would like to meet my grandfather Edwards because I think there is more to the stories about him than I have heard.
