What People Say About Us
"The Aroostook House of Comfort, to me and my family, was a place in Presque Isle that we knew as “The Hospice House.” On August 3, our family started looking at this place in a different light and will continue to do so for the rest of our lives. When we drove up, the first thing we noticed was the beautiful landscaping, the peaceful aura of the place itself, and the warm, inviting atmosphere of the building. The team was getting Dad settled in his new room. We were greeted by an extremely friendly volunteer who welcomed us and ushered us into a room where Dr. Jones was waiting for us. Our experience with the House was nothing short of amazing. I can’t say enough good things about the place itself, the staff that works and volunteers there, or the amazing mission of the organization.”
“When our family's world felt as though it was falling apart as we grappled with the impending loss of my mom, the question around how we would proceed to put her at ease in her final days had an easy answer for us. The Aroostook House of Comfort is such a gift to our community and families in northern Maine. While I wish no one ever had to utilize their services, when families need help with a dying loved one, there is no other place I would turn to or recommend than the Aroostook House of Comfort. Their staff was incredibly attentive, providing comfort and guidance not just to Mom but to all of us in the family during and after her passing. If you have a loved one who may need end-of-life care, I can recommend no other facility and team higher than the Aroostook House of Comfort.”
