Our Guests’ courage and faith never fail to touch our hearts.
We also welcomed Gary to ABODE. He arrived one morning and died that afternoon. His mother held his hand with two friends present in the room, helping him pass in love and peace.
Dolores came to ABODE at the end of February and died a few days later. Dee, as she was called, was in her early 50s and spent her career as an electrician.
Julie, who was half Ruth’s age, died a few hours after Ruth did. She was with us for just a few days. We were able to locate her son in time so that he could be with her at the end. He brought her favorite dog, and she died peacefully with them both by her side.
Sometimes Guests come to ABODE and, because of the love and care we give them, their health greatly improves. We’re happy to say that such is the case of one of our most beloved Guests, Jack. Since arriving at ABODE last year, Jack has found a special place in each of our hearts. He has created a community, become involved in his church, enjoys outings with friends and has helped us keep ABODE in tip-top shape.

About 5 percent of our Guests are veterans. All branches of the service have been represented. We are grateful to Herschel Sheines and the Jewish War Veterans for their continued support of ABODE and our Veteran Guests.
We’re always especially honored when we can care for Guests who served in our military. In fact, we always place a flag representing their military branch outside their room.
