“Each life is a miracle that changes the world and leaves it a better place than it was before.” Bill and Peggy passed while serving on the board of directors. Their love and compassion for family, friends and community was their inspiration for helping to bring a hospice house to Aroostook County.

What People Say About Us

I have seen the compassionate care patients receive here. There is nothing but praise and gratitude from families that we now have this home atmosphere to treat all levels of patient suffering. The relief and stress is gone; families can relax and be there to be the support of their loved one.

Nancy T. O’Neill, MD, FAAFP

The nurses, doctor, and volunteers treated us with the way you would want to be treated and our loved one was treated with gentle care and loving attention.  The facility was so well planned, giving families room to spend with a loved one, and spaces for a few minutes of quiet time. We are so thankful for the experience.

Judy Kenney, family of Virginia Packard
