Compassionate Care for the Dying

Helping our residents and their families to make each day the best day that it can possibly be

“Our lives are enriched beyond measure when we accept the eventuality of our own deaths and are free to live fully—and thankfully—each moment.”

A Home for the Dying

At Isaiah House, we affirm the value of life at every stage by providing compassionate care for the dying. While neither hastening or preventing death, we help our residents live their last days in comfort and love.

We offer residence to people with irreversible illnesses who have been determined to be within the last three months of their lives. Hospitality and comfort are rendered in cooperation with a certified home health agency and the resident’s physician. We can serve two residents at a time in our house. We believe in the dignity and value of every person and we welcome everyone with the same unconditional love.

Isaiah House charges no fee. We rely on the generosity of those we touch — the friends, family and loved ones of those who have helped during their final journey — through memorial donations, estate planning, volunteering and more.
