For patients whose symptoms cannot be managed at home, the recently renovated VNA Hospice House offers premier end-of-life care in an elegant yet cozy home-like setting. The spacious 12,000 square-foot building has 12 private beautifully appointed patient rooms imbued with hues of soft grey, teal and an array of neutrals, each with its own large bathroom. The rooms also include sleeping accommodations for overnight visitors. In addition, every room includes a private lanai overlooking lush gardens.
The VNA Hospice House is available up to five days every month to patients receiving hospice at their homes under a program called Respite Care. The goal of the program is to offer the patients’ primary caregiver, usually a family member, time to refuel.
The VNA Hospice House employs around-the-clock care for residents. With a central communication system, residents of the VNA Hospice House can receive immediate attention anywhere on the property.
VNA Hospice House Amenities
The VNA Hospice House offers residents many amenities to make their stays comfortable and practical. In addition to the 12 private patient rooms, the house is equipped with a sky-lit reflection room, full professional-grade kitchen, formal dining room and various relaxing spaces for guests. What’s more, a professional in-house chef provides delectable meals for residents that they can order on tablets provided by Hospice House.
Residents and visitors who explore the grounds of the VNA Hospice House will find an environment that fosters serenity and peace. The house is surrounded by 4.2 acres of tropical foliage and several meditation sites, including a pretty gazebo that overlooks a pond.
A Place for Remembering
The grounds also include a memorial area appropriately named ‘A Place For Remembering’ whose centerpiece is an attractive fountain surrounded by sleek, black tribute plaques. Seating was incorporated into the structure so loved ones can reflect comfortably in a tranquil and serene environment.
Tribute plaques are available to anyone who wishes to remember a loved one, not just those who have been served by VNA Hospice.
