Our residents come to the House of John and receive 1:1 care twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week at no cost to them. Their insurance pays for their medications and supplies. We work in concert with their medical providers and doctors.

Our staff is composed of a dedicated corps of volunteers. We employ a full time Director/RN Coordinator, a part-time LPN, and a full time Volunteer Coordinator. This staffing allows the family to be as involved as they wish in the care of their loved one. It also allows them to be “family” and not have the burden of being the full-time caregiver. We provide the resident and the family with guidance and support to make the final journey.

At House of John, we take into consideration the losses the dying person has already suffered. The emphasis is on enhancing the quality of the remaining life, and allowing as many choices as possible. We do this with great sensitivity and in a manner that validates and affirms their life.
