Teresa House, a two resident bedroom home, offers a comfort care ministry to residents who are nearing the end of a terminal illness, and to their families, by providing a home environment of love, dignity and support. A volunteer/staff extended family cares for the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of the resident and their family during the last precious days of life, and extends into the bereavement process.

Teresa House offers a comfort care ministry to residents who are nearing the end of a terminal illness, and to their families, by providing a home environment of love, dignity and support. An extended family of volunteers and staff cares for the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of the resident and their family during the last precious days of life, and extends into the bereavement process.
We become an extended family bringing physical, emotional and spiritual care to our residents and their families as they journey toward the end of this life. All volunteer care givers are asked to perform a wide spectrum of duties which include: physical and emotional care of the residents and their families; reading or watching TV with the residents; preparing small meals; giving medications; and answering phones.
Admission to Teresa House is based on need with preference given to residents who cannot be cared for safely at home. The resident’s personal physician will have determined that they are in the last stages of life due to a terminal illness.
Referrals are welcomed from area hospitals, physicians, social workers, family members, and Livingston County Hospice.
All financial support for the House comes from donations, memorials, bequests, grants, individuals, businesses, service organizations, churches and fund-raising events. We also receive funding through the Livingston County United Way and SEFA, (State Employees Federated Appeal). We do not receive insurance reimbursement, State or Federal aid.

Our memorial service on May 6th honored 14 beloved residents who passed away in the last year.
The Teresa House Board of Directors, Staff and Volunteers would like to send many thanks to all of our donors, sponsors and in-kind supporters. We are constantly amazed by the generosity of our community! Your donations are used in the day-to-day operations of caring for the terminally ill and their families. It is only through your generosity that the ministry of Teresa House can continue. Special thanks to the many individuals and businesses who contribute every year. We are blessed to live in such a caring community.
