The Trillium House is a new organization with the mission to build and support a residence for individuals to live in during their final weeks and months, while under the care of Hospice. In an effort to achieve community awareness of this mission, this website will communicate our mission to the public, provide detail to the media, and recruit support and donations to accomplish this pressing and worthy goal.
Hospice care requires a minimum of one consistent caregiver to ensure safety and support for everyday activities of daily living. The most fragile in the community often have unstable housing or inconsistent caregiver support. But you may be surprised that these individuals are most likely your neighbors, friends…. it can even be yourself in the future! There is most likely at least one man or woman living on your street, who lives alone and does not have a friend or family member who is able to provide this consistent and stable level of support during end-of-life. Many of us transition from empty-nesters, to widows, to find ourselves ill and not quite sure who can keep us safe in our own homes. The Trillium House is for all of us.
