What People Say About Us

“From the moment the Aroostook House of Comfort hospice team got involved, we felt such a load lifted from our shoulders. So many people were involved in so many helpful ways. Her medications, personal care, pain control. All the things that we could not adequately do anymore. She now had qualified, competent, caring, and gifted people to care for her. We are still so moved and touched by the kindness and compassion of everyone involved.”

Lillian Goughan

“My father lived at the Aroostook House of Comfort for 13 days before he passed. Dad and the family were welcomed on arrival. Dr. Jones was there to greet Dad and meet with the family. My father was treated every day with kindness and compassion. Our family felt welcome, and we were there daily. This is the most wonderful place, and we are so blessed to have it in our area.”
