We are a Home, not a facility.
We are a home, not a facility. Yet it’s a home where there is ample support. The social environment is one of caring, and offers emotional support for the families. The volunteers of the Toni and Trish House provide personal, selfless, compassionate care to each guest in a home-like environment.
A physical environment that is bright, clean, and not “institutional” is also very important. The home has space for three guests, a spacious kitchen, a common living room, a chapel, and a laundry.
End of Life Care
As the end of life approaches, each family’s story is different. A person can linger, gradually fading away or death can be sudden. End-of-life care describes the support and medical care given during the time surrounding one’s death. Such care does not happen in the moments before death. Care can be needed for days, weeks, and sometimes even months.
Grief Support Groups
Support groups are a method of help for people struggling with all sorts of difficulties. Many individuals wonder if they will benefit from a support group, but groups are not magic, there are no words that can be spoken within a group that can make grief disappear. For many a support group can be a break from the loneliness and the boredom that often comes with grief.
Children's Grief Center
Children experience fewer deaths due to modern medicine that has helped in reducing child mortality and prolong the life expectancy for the elderly. More and more people die in nursing homes and hospitals that are outside the home environment. The exclusion of death from children’s lives requires us to teach them about death and grief.
Care of Your Loved Ones
Our caregivers show love, care, and comfort to those who stay with us throughout the dying process. Providing our guests and their families with home cooked meals, companionship, and a special place to spend quality time with their loved ones.
