Meals & Kitchen Facilities

 

We are grateful for the Comfort Food Memorial Fund established by the family of Dr. William F. Bergen. This allows us to provide nourishment to patient’s families and caregivers. Volunteers may assist with meal preparation or special requests from patients and family members. Snacks and beverages are available in the dining room self-service area. Visitors are also permitted to bring food to keep in patient suites.

Visiting Hours

 

We appreciate the vital role family and friends play in the care and comfort of our patients. Visitors are welcomed to remain on-site throughout their loved one’s stay. We do ask that everyone sign in at the front desk and children under the age of 12 be accompanied by an adult. All guests should self-monitor symptoms. They should not be ill with colds, flu, sore throat, cough, or any contagious condition and must follow infection control policies. If a patient prefers to limit company, please let the nursing staff or house volunteer know. They can help manage visitor flow.

 

Building Access

 

Visiting hours are flexible to meet the needs of patients and their families. The main entrance is the best means for entering and exiting the building as many of our other entrances are fitted with an alarm system for patient safety. Please ask a staff member or volunteer for more details on building access or for special circumstances.

Wifi & Cell Phone Use

 

Laptop computers, tablets, and cell phones are permitted. Complementary wireless internet is available, and a computer is provided in the living room area. Use of cellular phones is permitted in all areas of the hospice house, except in the chapel. As a courtesy, please speak in a low voice and set the ringer to vibrate or low. To protect the privacy of others, please do not take pictures or video within the hospice house without consent.

What People Say About Us


I have seen the compassionate care patient 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 are gone; families can relax and be there to support 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.
