Where Hospice and Heart Come Together

Our success is due to the support of volunteers, donors, and our local communities.

The Aroostook Hospice Foundation (AHF) is a nonprofit corporation established in 2009 to raise hospice care awareness and funds for the Aroostook House of Comfort. The board members, volunteers, and community are all bound by one common thread—their loved ones. This bond fuels a commitment to making an impact on the lives of patients and families. The Foundation is committed to allocating resources to maintain the Aroostook House of Comfort, where individuals and families receive compassionate care, comfort, and support on their journey through hospice. A portion of the funds raised is designated for our Charity Care program. Charity Care funding is available to assist patients and families who are underinsured, uninsured, or without other financial means with the expenses associated with care received at the Aroostook House of Comfort.

TESTIMONIALS

What People Say About Us


“The House of comfort is a wonderful facility for end-of-life care. My Dad went for a week of respite care, and I can't thank the staff enough for all they do. It really is a "House of Comfort." I felt very much at home when visiting Dad. The atmosphere is of a quiet nature. There are various sitting areas, a fireplace, and a kitchen area. The staff are friendly and there for you and your loved ones anytime, day or night. I love you, Pop. From the bottom of my heart, I say "thank you" to the entire staff at the House of Comfort.”


Becky Hare

“When my father, Danny Albert, was at the House of Comfort, I felt so incredibly thankful that my family and I could be there with him in such a beautiful and supportive environment, during that part of his journey. It’s a bizarre feeling to be suffering and grieving while in a place of peace. The House of Comfort is (surprisingly) exactly that, a place of peace that lifts the weight of tragedy off your shoulders enough so you can breathe and be present, knowing your loved one is being cared for.”
