All resident rooms in our hospices are private rooms. Every room contains: a private washroom with shower, an adjustable therapeutic surface bed, a TV with basic cable and DVD player, patio doors, a recliner chair for visitors and a small fridge.
You are welcome to bring in personal items such as pictures and mementos that are significant to the resident. We ask that you do not put any nails in the walls to hang these items. We suggest using command strip products that allow you to hang pictures without damaging the wall.
We ask that you not bring in furniture as it may inhibit staff ability to provide care.
Bedding and Laundry
To minimize potential health concerns we provide bed linens and towels for use in the hospice. We ask that those staying overnight requests linens from staff.
If there is a particular item that is significant for a resident such as a pillow or a blanket please provide it directly to a staff member- please do not take it in to the resident’s room-our staff will place it in the dryer on high heat and then bring to the residents room.
We ask family to please take personal items home for laundering. We launder our own linens and towels.
We have a central air and heating system. If you choose to open windows or doors in a resident’s room please close the interior door so as not to impact the temperature of the house. Patio doors must be closed and locked at night. Unfortunately, there is very minimal control of individual room temperature. Please speak with staff if you need a fan or heater to help regulate your room temperature.
