BALDWIN--After nearly two decades of providing quality end-of-life care services to Western Wisconsin residents, ADORAY Home Health and Hospice plans to build a hospice house.

A hospice house is designed to care for patients with a terminal illness, who require care beyond what a family is able to offer. The home-like setting will be staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by the experienced, specially trained members of the ADORAY hospice team.

In the upcoming months, the ADORAY Hospice Board Committee will take on the ambitious challenge of raising the funds needed to build this multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art hospice facility. In addition, the committee will be seeking an ideal location for the hospice house.

ADORAY is the only Wisconsin-based not-for-profit home health and hospice agency serving all of St. Croix, Pierce, Polk and Western Dunn counties. For more information on the hospice house or ADORAY Home Health and Hospice, contact Paula Johnson, hospice manager, at 715-684-5020 or
