The original concept of hospice was caring for the terminally ill in their own home with their family and loved ones at their bedside. As such, we pride ourselves in delivering services where you can be in your own home with your family and loved ones at your bedside.
The ability to choose where to spend one’s final days is so important! It is comforting to be in a familiar environment, surrounded by the people and things you love.

Joni Fair Hospice House
When hospice patients need care beyond what can be provided at home, the Joni Fair Hospice House, our 10-bed inpatient hospice facility, can provide needed care so your loved one can return home as soon as possible. Our certified team of hospice care professionals is skilled in the medical management of pain and complicated symptoms. 24-hour assistance is available when acute care is needed for your loved one.
The emphasis at Hospice House is not only to take care of the patient, but the family as well. To ensure all needs are met, the staff is dedicated to providing round-the-clock care for patients, while offering meals and additional accommodations. All guests will be treated with love and compassion.
The ultimate goal of the inpatient unit is to serve as a place of transition, to stabilize patients and allow them to return home or to a long-term care environment. Hospice care focuses on the comfort of patients, and there is no greater place of comfort or stability than one’s home. While at the Joni Fair Hospice House, specialized rooms and soothing common areas create a homelike environment.
