Welcome to ABODE

ABODE provides a welcoming, peaceful home and unconditional loving care to our guests through the compassionate service of our community and volunteers.

Our Vision

Dying is a sacred time of life. Love, compassion, and a home matter to all who are dying; those whom we honor and from whom we learn. We serve the community as an educational resource in the art of contemplative living and dying.
Bloom &  Grow
"Bloom & Grow"
was the theme for our 2015 Volunteer Dinner where
we celebrated friends and coworkers.

The guests at ABODE and their friends and families quickly become part of the community of ABODE. They have meals together as often as possible, share and talk. eatingTable

Yes! We had a birthday party at ABODE.


One of our guests celebrated his brithday recently. We helped him do that and it was great fun for all. First, there was his favorite meal of brisket with all the trimmings. Then there was a beatuiful cake -- okay, it was more like a pie but it was a cool pie, a banana creme de leche pie -- made especially for the celebration by Mireya.

A small gathering of friends and caregivers shared this special day with our guest.

Which just goes to prove that you won't know what is happening at ABODE unless you come and see for yourself!
