A place of love and kindness, a place where people live.
Often times we ask those near to passing on if they had any regrets and what their fondest moments were. When we lose the ones we love it can be a very difficult and traumatic time in our lives and for those who know they will be passing.
ARCH provides a cost-free place where people journeying to end of life can go to feel welcomed, comforted and safe. Their care is twenty-four-hour care and is provided by a team of trained professionals with a focus on the physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort of the resident and their loved ones. ARCH Hospice is a haven of comfort for local families providing support, before, during and after their stay.
Ten minutes from the highlands on 3-acres of extraordinary grounds, you have nature at your doorstep. A canopy of warm and welcoming trees above and wildlife sharing their comforting presence with you. There are no limits on visiting hours and they encourage visits with loved ones, children and pets. Hot beverages and delicious goodies are always available in the kitchen and on weekdays there are fresh, chef-prepared meals and soup available at lunchtime.
ARCH Hospice has a wishes program for their residents and families that allow them to see live musical performances, butterfly releases, old-time car shows, custom made meals for residents and events such as weddings, just to name a few. This ensures that the focus is on living and creating memories.
ARCH Hospice requires $750,000 every year in community support to fund
operations. They are only partially funded – the rest comes from community support through fundraising and donations. Volunteers are also a critical component of their success. With over 140 regular volunteers collectively contribute more than 15 000 hours annually. It gives us a very beautiful perspective on how important this is and how much our community believes in ARCH to have such an incredible amount of volunteers saying that this is worth their time.
We are beyond grateful to share with you the wonderful ARCH Hospice.
The effect they have made on our community has been beyond impactful.
They are an example of pure-hearted people sharing the power of unconditional love.
