Teresa House

Teresa House is committed to providing a safe, clean, home-like setting for residents of Livingston, and surrounding counties, who are in their last stages of life. The need for this service in our community is clear and ongoing. We are the only comfort care home in Livingston County. Teresa House is a much-needed health care option and one that is frequently sought out by the medical community. Our mission addresses the ever-growing health care need of providing around the clock end-of-life care and support for the dying and their families. We believe that life is precious from beginning to end and that death is a natural process, which should be allowed to unfold with dignity and peace of mind, in an atmosphere of unconditional love and support. Comfort care for our residents is provided in a safe, warm, home-like environment of love, dignity and support from admission until death. This is accomplished by using a volunteer extended family of ~70 trained caregivers from the community, supervised by the part-time registered professional nursing staff that works with our volunteer medical director. Family support and hospitality services for family members are offered throughout the dying process. The focus of care is on the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our residents and their families. Over the course of twenty-nine years, Teresa House has cared for over 475 residents and hundreds of family members and friends. Quietly, patiently and lovingly Teresa House has affected the lives of hundreds of people, improving their quality of life and making the dying process more comfortable for their families and friends.
