Mission Statement

God's love, expressed in the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, moves us to establish a ministry where patients nearing the end of a terminal illness can die with dignity and comfort and where patient, family and friends can share this special time of life in a holistic, supportive environment that extends into the bereavement process.

Description

We are a hospice-care home which provides for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the dying in a loving homelike setting. We affirm the dying person's dignity, encouraging them to participate in determining what would most enhance their quality of life.

Staff and volunteers, in conjunction with a certified home health agency and the resident's physician, provide individualized holistic care. We believe comfort can be maintained as death approaches in a supportive setting of and personalized care.

We are a two bed home for the dying who have been medically determined to be in the last three months of thier lives. Admission is based solely on need regardless of religion, age, sex, race or the ability to pay. There are no fees.
