We believe that every moment matters and strive to provide comfort and support while respecting your dignity.
How do I become a guest?
A simple phone call starts the process.
We accept referrals directly from individuals in need, family members, hospice staff, doctors and hospitals. Once a referral is made, we gather medical information from your hospice and determine if we can meet your needs.
Individuals and families are invited to tour Clarehouse during daylight hours. No appointment is necessary.
Once mutually agreed that Clarehouse is the right choice for you, a bedroom will be offered as soon as available. This process usually takes about a week. Your hospice will arrange for your transportation to Clarehouse and the delivery of needed medical equipment.
What are the costs?
All Clarehouse services are provided free of charge. We are a 501(c)3 public charity and are funded entirely by donation. We do not bill Medicare, private insurance or individuals.
