Oscar the Nursing Home Cat

Oscar lives on dementia unit at Steere Hourse Nursing Home. He holds viigils for dyiing perons of dementia, but only for the last 2-4 hours of life. A colleague, Dave Dosa, wrote a story about OSCAR in the NEJM. In the two days after publication, OSCAR was the top news story -making every major network, including CNN, BBC, and others. While some newspaper joked about OSCAR as the grim creeper, we know that Oscar offers comfort to dying persons and their families. For our take on this story, please see the following editorial. http://www.projo.com/opinion/contributors/content/CT_dosa5_08-05-07_KB6I3IU.1942cb0.html
