PLEASE NOTE: THE ARTICLE LINKS TO THE RIGHT WERE PRINTED IN 2006. SINCE THEN, HOUSE OF GRACE HAS IMPLEMENTED A ROOM RENTAL REQUEST.  However, admission is not based on ability to make a donation.

Our Philosophy at House of Grace of the Adirondacks, Inc.:

We believe that the process of dying is a stage of life that should be validated. Our volunteers have been specially trained in the skill of active listening and will emotionally be where the resident is, sharing their joys, fears, and reminiscences.  The staff and volunteers will ensure a safe, loving environment for the residents and their family and friends.

House of Grace is nondenominational.  Admission is based on need, regardless of gender, race, religion, or age. 

While we are not a hospice facility, all residents will be pre-enrolled in the High Peaks Hospice Program and receive full hospice services. Meals-on-Wheels may provide afternoon and evening meals on request.  We ask that residents and their family provide the groceries if financially able.  The resident may prepare their own meal, family may do the cooking or our volunteers and staff will prepare meals.

Each of the two resident's bedrooms have a sofa-bed that families can use, if needed, in spending the night with their loved one.  Also, a quiet room is located downstairs for the family.

House of Grace receives no funding. As a nonprofit organization, we are totally dependent on the generosity of our community for support.  We do request a room rental donation. With that support House of Grace will continue its much needed Mission.  READ MORE by clicking on this LINK TO our Fall/Winter 2013 Newsletter!
