Patients have their own private room with bathroom, and can share common areas where family can gather and visit, such as the library, tea room, family room with full kitchen, outside porch, and spectacular surrounding grounds.

Two family suites are also available for out of town family members and a family kitchen, dining area and entertainment room is specifically designated for family and friends of patients to have gatherings.

About Our Hospice Residence

What Services are Provided?

  • Assistance with personal care from home health aides
  • Visits from the hospice team including physician, registered
    nurse, social worker, chaplain, bereavement counselor,
    and volunteers (as needed and desired).
  • Breakfast, lunch, and dinner
  • Housekeeping and laundry service

How is Residential Care Paid?

Room and board fees are paid by the patient and/or family.  Medicare and Medicaid do not cover residence room and board. However, some private insurers and long-term care providers may. Medical insurers such as Medicare, Medicaid, and managed care plans do cover the cost of the hospice care, medications and medical equipment provided at the hospice residence, just as it would be covered in one’s own home.

We operate and maintain the Pat Roche Hospice House as part of our charitable mission. We rely on charitable generosity and are so grateful to the donors who make this community resource possible. Want to help? Click Here.
