About us:
The Hospice House is a privately owned 3-bedroom home that takes in terminally ill patients on hospice care in their last 90 days of life.  Each patient has a private bedroom, bathroom, and a screened porch.  We provide a caregiver, 24 hours a day, free of charge, for families in need.  We do not have visiting hours and guest are welcome to stay as long as they like to be with their loved one.  Each room has an oversized chair that pulls out to be a bed for overnight stays.  Our funding comes solely from donations and fundraisers.  We love giving tours of what we provide to our community.  Call to schedule a tour.
