Journey Home

A Place of Compassion and Peace

Our goal at Journey Home is to embrace loved ones on their final journey by offering them physical, emotional and spiritual care. This care is given by a dedicated team of volunteers, nurses and an all-volunteer board. Since 1999 we have had the honor and privilege of serving 420 residents.  Nestled on the corner of Vintage and Long Pond Road in Greece, our residents and their families can enjoy a lovely treed lot alongside a flowing stream, providing a peaceful, tranquil setting.  There is no charge to come to Journey Home. We survive solely on donations, memorials and fundraisers, such as $9.94. We send our thanks for your donation.

 

Peace,

The Journey Home Family

Mission

Our goal is to provide guidance, support and comfort to individuals and their families as they journey through the dying process.

About

Journey Home is a privately, incorporated home, offering care to two persons at one time, within a home setting. Residents at Journey Home are referred to us by one of two Certified Hospice agencies: Visiting Nurse Hospice or Lifetime Care Hospice.

Each prospective resident must have a terminal illness with a prognosis of three months or less. They are then interviewed by our nursing staff to make sure that Journey Home is a good match for their needs and for ours.

We do not discriminate against age, race, religion or gender. We do accept all illnesses including HIV+/AIDS.  Read More…

 

Caregivers & Cost

Who Performs the Care at JH?

Trained volunteers are the heart of Journey Home. They are guided by our Nursing Staff, the residents Hospice agency team and their own Physician. Journey Home also has a Medical Director- Joseph Finetti, MD who works closely with the nurses to ensure proper care within our home.

How Can the Care Be Free of Charge?

In the Homes for the Dying there is no charge because the majority of the care is provided by volunteers. We do not receive any third party insurance. This is possible because of the generosity of donations from the community, memorials and our fundraisers.
