Commitment to Making Room for Love
To better serve our West Tennessee community, we are planning a 20,000 square foot hospice home.
The Hospice Home will offer 20 private, furnished suites full of homey comforts, including sofa beds for family members who wish to stay near loved ones overnight. The hospice home will be located across from Jackson-Madison County General Hospital on Coatsland Drive in a beautiful wooded lot, providing a serene location, yet close to all of our medical facilities.
The Hospice Home offers a number of comforting settings for families to share stories, laugh, cry, and celebrate a life well-lived. The Hospice Home will offer a loving team of specialized doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, and trained volunteers. All our services will be offered with the understanding that every patient, and every family, faces the end of life differently. Patients of the Hospice Home receive highly individual care that respects the sanctity, dignity and spiritual welfare of each person.
This campaign largely depends upon our success in securing private support. With a projected cost of $20 million, we need philanthropic partners like you who share our commitment to providing optimal level of hospice care to
