The homes have one-car garages, fully equipped kitchens and washer and dryer hook-ups but don't have the worry of groundskeeping, home maintenance or housekeeping. Residents have emergency call pendants and their contracts allow for 10-free days of health care.  Homes are rentals based on a one-time entrance fee (partially refundable) and monthly rental fees.

About Hospice Services at Methodist ElderCare

Hospice Services at Methodist ElderCare, an affiliate of Methodist ElderCare, opened its doors in 2011 as a result of a need observed in the overall services that were provided through Methodist ElderCare’s facilities in Ohio.  As patients transitioned through the Methodist ElderCare system (i.e., Independent Living, Assisted Living, Long-Term Care) personnel began to identify the need to provide hospice as an extension of care to its residents.  Thus, Hospice Services at Methodist ElderCare was born.
