Who We Serve

Porta Caeli House provides a home and compassionate care for the terminally ill and their loved ones, as well as a place of emotional, spiritual, and social support.

All you need is a need

Porta Caeli House guests are served regardless of race, illness, faith or financial status. Services are provided at no charge.

Our mission is to provide an environment dedicated to helping achieve the highest quality of living throughout our guests’ last days. Each guest is provided with the following:

  • Private bedroom with individual heating and cooling controls, along with a private patio
  • Overnight accommodations for an adult family member
  • Personal hygiene and meals
  • Assistance with transfers, repositioning, eating, and medications
  • Simple meals can be prepared and served to the guest at any time per request
  • Following the hospice agency’s plan of care

Our Home, Your Family

Our staff will care for your loved one 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You are welcome to assist with this care as much or as little as is comfortable.

Immediate family members and loved ones are welcome at Porta Caeli House at all times.

Each guest room is furnished with a comfortable twin size sleeper sofa so an adult family member can stay overnight if desired. A shower for family use is also available and is located near the north Great Room. All bedding, towels and toiletries are provided; simply ask one of our staff for any of these items.

Porta Caeli for care, Hospice for medical

Porta Caeli provides care just as a family would for a loved one. We are not a licensed medical facility, nursing home or hospice program.

For this reason, guests must be enrolled in a hospice program before being admitted to Porta Caeli House, and have a Do Not Resuscitate order (DNR) in place. The guest’s hospice program dictates the medical plan of care and other hospice services.
