No one wants to imagine themselves or their loved ones in the position of needing end-of-life care. However, most will need some sort of help when the end is near. Now it’s easier since Utah County has received its first hospice home.

Sunrise Hospice Home is a 16,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Orem that was built specifically to cater to those nearing the last days of life and the people who love them. With superior comfort and knowledge, end-of-life care is provided in a warm and serene setting.

r

“It is a place where friends and families can gather to enjoy the richness of life until the last moments and leave their worldly cares behind,” said Stacy Hales, director of nursing at Sunrise Hospice Home. “Our compassionate and certified professionals and volunteers allow families and friends to leave the role of caregiver and resume the role of spouse, child, sibling or friend. It’s a place where patients and families can alleviate the fear of dying, begin to heal emotionally and embrace the time to say goodbye.”

r

Sunrise Hospice Home has all of the amenities needed to cater to families and patients including family suites where relatives traveling from out of town can stay on site, large patient rooms and family gathering areas.

r

One of the most unique benefits of Sunrise Hospice Home is that there is no charge for those who need financial assistance. “Through very generous donations, we have the unique ability to not have to turn anyone away because of financial hardship. We are very fortunate to be able to provide this service to the community,” said Steve Kelly, director of marketing.

If you’re wondering if someone you know would qualify for this unique facility, or if you have any general questions, please call Pam Lamoreaux, intake specialist, at 801-224-7200.
