I feel very fortunate that my Dad is spending the last days of his life at this facility. Not only is it an incredibly beautiful location surrounded by trees and gardens, the staff are amazing. They are kind, patient and attentive. I couldn't ask for anything more for my Dad. Thank you Hopewell House for everything.

I work in healthcare as a caretaker and my best friend stayed here in his last days. the place was clean and it seamed nice at first. they even had a room where family members could stay that had beds and a shower.
unfortunalty the problem here was with patient care. specifically pain management. If your loved one is dying from any ailment that involves pain, definitely do not send your loved one here.
my friend was dying from cancer and spent his last four days of his life here. he was in tremendous pain and they refused to increase his pain meds. we asked them why and they wouldn't give any reason. everytime we asked if they could give him an emergency dose they would hesitate and many times even refuse leaving my friend in pain which he rated a 9 out of ten
when we asked them to page the oncall doctor we could hear him yelling at the nurse " why are you calling me!!" as if he didn't want to deal with his dying patients.
one night they had even ran out of morphine in the whole place so all the patients on morphine were either in complete pain or switched to something less effective.
In my friends very last day. he was unable to communicate and his only way to voice anything was to force a quick slight movement. well we could tell he was in extreme pain by his face gesture and so we begged the nurse to give him another dosing. she looked at him and said he doesn't look like he is in pain and refused. we then asked our friend to please move your finger if you need more pain meds so he did. she claimed she didn't see it. so then he shook his leg. which is the most movement I had seen from him in his last days and after that she still hesitated and finally gave him more medicine.
I thought this was a isolated case. unfortunate to say after talking to other people who have had family members stay here. it appears to be an ongoing problem. I could go on for days about their lack of pain management but this review would never end.
as a caretaker I would have to say that I would never wish for my patients or loved ones to have to spend their last days here. I would never wish it upon anyone.

My father recently spent a couple of weeks at Hopewell. He received the best care we could have hoped for. He was kept as comfortable as possible and received whatever services he needed. Even when he was unaware of the care he was getting, we, the family, continued to be taken care of in this lovely, homey place. Staff were attentive and spent a lot of time with us talking about the changes that were taking place with Dad. The home itself is beautiful and in a great location. We were able to walk to restaurants and a grocery store. There is a couple of rooms available for families and always a dining table stocked with goodies from the local businesses. We are so grateful to have been directed to Hopewell!

Hopewell House provides a warm and home like atmosphere for patients and families during the final days of life. The staff is sensitive, supportive and compassionate. The setting is serene, as well. I would highly recommend this facility for those wanting a quality hospice experience.
