East Mountain House
How Will This Work?

How Will This Work?

  • Designed and totally focused on care at the end of life
  • Complementary and unique to what already exists in the community
  • In a collaborative working relationship with the resident’s hospice/medical care provider
  • Not a hospital, nursing home, or medical facility
  • An advocate for the relief of suffering neither prolonging or hastening death
  • Inclusive and open to all people in accordance with admission protocols
  • Created by the local community for the local community
  • Fundamentally grass roots in nature
  • Independent and freestanding non-profit organization (East Mountain Foundation)
  • Funded by community and family support
  • Paid staff and volunteers who are “extended family”
