Allow the finest qualities of humanity to shine
There has long been an unmet need in our community for an alternative to dying in a hospital or a skilled nursing facility. Caring for a loved one near the end of life is often a difficult time—one of uncertainty, grief and fear of what is to come.
This special 12-room house, the first residential hospice house in Sonoma County, will ease the way for patients and their families. The project will break ground in March of 2022, and will welcome its first patients in the summer of 2023.
Even amidst suffering and sadness, the end of life can be a profound experience when a person is safe and comfortable and truly feels surrounded by life, love and even joy. Our residential hospice house will provide the nurture and care that allows an individual to leave this world with dignity and love.
Ministering to the human heart
Benefiting those who need it most
A place for family and friends
Close to home care
The Hospice House will be located at 520 Doyle Park Drive on the campus of Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. Providence St. Joseph Health has donated the property to make this community project possible.
Welcoming and comfortable
The architecture of Hospice House will be notable for its natural light, beautiful wood walls, clean lines and open spaces. Private patios off each room will provide an open and airy feel. Beautiful, landscaped gardens with lush plantings will provide additional tranquil areas for meditation.
Privacy & safety
Each of the twelve private rooms will be designed with a patient’s comfort and safety in mind. Here one will find a cozy, intimate environment full of natural light and beauty. Each patient will have space for cherished photographs and keepsakes.
