We are building a model for multiple local community-based homes for the last few days to weeks of life. See our full website at http://OurHospiceHouse.org
A place with an outdoor garden and comfortable home-like atmosphere for families to gather for end of life care. A living room, eating area, kitchen to enjoy family time. A chapel for prayer and quite reflection. Private rooms with a seating area adjacent to the bedroom.
End-of-life homes are known informally and collectively by many different names: “Comfort Care Homes”, “Homes for the Dying”, and “Social Model Hospice Homes”. In general, the term Hospice in the US implies the Medicare model which does not pay for housing or 24/7 care during this difficult time. This is where our community must step in and help.
Our first house opened in Temple/Belton in August 2023. Please contact us to help with this important project.
