A private room is currently under construction, and should be finished by the end of October 2010. This will provide a comfortable setting within a private home, for a single resident who wishes to spend their final days in a spiritually supportive environment.
Those volunteering at Hospice House benefit from GRAND TRANSITIONS INSTITUTE Conscious End-Of-Life Training Programs. Volunteers will be encouraged to participate in these training programs which enhance end-of-life care-giving skills as well as prepare for our own end of life. The awareness and understanding gained from the teachings allow volunteers to become increasingly capable of providing a high-quality environment for those at end of life..
Support for Buddhist practitioners is emphasized, however, patients of any religious background are most welcome, and will be given the same individual emotional and spiritual support requested.
