"A Home for the Terminally Ill"

Mercy House is a community care shelter which provides a home and a supportive family to people with terminal illnesses who can no longer remain at home. Residents spend their final days surrounded by their loved ones, and the love of Mercy House staff and volunteers. The mission of Mercy House is to unconditionally accept each resident and ensure that they are treated with dignity, respect and compassion.

Residents receive quality care in a home-like environment that includes:

  • 24-hour care as an alternative to nursing home, hospital or at-home care
  • Private bedrooms with cable TV and telephone
  • Home-cooked meals
  • Chapel
  • Open visiting hours for family and friends
