When you think that ABODE would be right for you, ask your hospice social worker to refer you to us – or they may suggest ABODE to you. Our number is (210) 967-9891. We’ll need your clinicals emailed to us at email@example.com. Your name should be included in the subject line.
If you meet our criteria, we’ll add you to our waiting list. When a room opens, we will visit you and your family to review our various agreements and services and ensure we’re the right fit for one another.
