Comfort Food Fund


In 2018 the Dr. William F. Bergen family established the Comfort Food Fund to support families of patients at the Aroostook House of Comfort. The memorial fund continues to provide nourishment for those devoting long and tender hours and days close to their loved ones. Thank you, Bergen family, for your yearly contribution.


Dr. Bergen practiced medicine in Fort Fairfield, Presque Isle, and Washburn from 1996-2009 and had a deep respect for the people of Aroostook County. Comfort Food will ensure the care he gave to his patients and their families will continue. For assistance with food items, please contact a staff member or volunteer.

Generous donation will support critical hospice need in Aroostook County.


The Aroostook Hospice Foundation (AHF), in continuing fundraising efforts for the Aroostook House of Comfort, is pleased to announce a major charitable contribution from a Presque Isle native, Mary Barton Akeley Smith. This generous donation made in memory of her late husband, Rodney Smith, was made possible in part by a grant from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. It will help support our facility or “house” where patients receive hospice services and continue its impact by ensuring that the Aroostook House of Comfort’s model of care is available for years to come. Read more

Blanket Warmer Donation: In Memory of Joyce Davis


The children of Joyce and Arnold Davis are honored to donate a blanket warmer to the Aroostook House of Comfort in memory of our mother. Mom and Dad were supporters of the House of Comfort from the time it was first conceived over a decade ago. Since Mom was an oncology nurse for four decades, she had many interactions with patients and their families who had to navigate end-of-life care. She also had first-hand experience with Dad while he was in hospice home care for the last months of this life. Professionally and personally, she understood the need for a residential hospice facility in Aroostook County that would provide around-the-clock nursing care for patients, freeing family members from the role of caregiver and allowing them to focus on the patient’s need for loving support. Mom knew the comfort patients experience from a warm hug.  he gave hugs frequently to her patients and others she loved and cared for. In the last few years of her life, Mom had several emergency room and hospital visits.  When the nursing staff put a warm blanket over her, she would often comment that it felt so good—like a warm hug. When we heard that the Aroostook House of Comfort needed a blanket warmer, we knew it would be what Mom would want them to have for the patients and family members they serve—an abundance of warm hugs. In loving memory of our mother, Susan Davis George, Robert Davis, Stephen Davis
