Haynes House questions answered

Haynes House of Hope

Contributed by Crystal Everdyke

 

This is the first of a series of articles that will answer some commonly asked questions about the Haynes House of Hope. The Haynes House of Hope is a home for the terminally ill and their families.  All residents have a doctor’s  prognosis of three months or less and have been enrolled with the Washington County Hospice or Palliative Care Services.   Anyone may refer someone for admittance to the Haynes House. 

The primary goals at the Haynes House are to provide comfort care, symptom control and pain management for the residents in a supportive and home-like environment. The home also provides respite care for families and loved ones.  For the health and safety of all residents, volunteers, staff and visitors, the Haynes House is a non-smoking campus.

Volunteers do not need to have a medical background or any medical training.  Residents will not have a need for injections or other medical procedures, nor will they have any extraordinary care needs that would not allow them to be safely and comfortably cared for by the staff and volunteers.   

Individuals will be admitted without regard to age, color, ethnic background or religion.  There are no financial requirements.  Residents that meet the admittance criteria will be accepted based on need-those that present the most significant and immediate need, with no other care options, will be given priority.  If both bedrooms are filled at the time of referral, potential residents will be placed on a waiting list and will be notified by the executive director when there is room availability.

Please contact 642-8155 with questions, referrals or to volunteer.
