    First Inpatient Hospice Home in Aroostook County Officially Opens

    5/17/2018
    The Aroostook House of Comfort, the first inpatient hospice home in Aroostook County, officially opened on May 9, 2018.
     
    VNA Home Health Hospice (VNA) is pleased to announce that state licensing has been secured and the first patient has been admitted to the Aroostook House of Comfort, located at 18 Green Hill Drive, Presque Isle, Maine. 

    The Aroostook House of Comfort is a free standing six bed inpatient facility that provides 24-hour care to those who no longer seek curative treatment and instead turn to hospice for comfort as end of life approaches. Experts at pain and symptom management, VNA will provide high quality compassionate care to all patients admitted to the “House” who need tranquility and comfort.  After all, hospice is Latin for hospitality.

    Nancy and Rick Duncan, along with Sharon and Dirk Duncan established the Aroostook Hospice Foundation, to raise the money for the House of Comfort which opened its doors to the community in early April of this year.  As the only Medicare certified hospice provider in the County, the VNA welcomed the opportunity to help the Duncan family fulfill a dream.
