FairHoPe Hospice & Palliative Care, Inc. is proud to introduce the 

latest addition to our services with the construction of The Pickering House!


The Pickering House is a home-like setting situated on approximately 40 picturesque 

acres for our patients to enjoy.  Views of nature and the quiet wooded setting will make 

patients feel right at home!



A few of the special features of The Pickering House include:  

  12 patient rooms

  Family lounge with kitchenette for families to use

  Family parlor

  Two three-season porches


  Great Room



                        What Type of Care Will Be Offered?


While most Hospice patients wish to remain at home, sometimes an alternate plan 

is needed.  Thatís where The Pickering House comes in!  Patients may be admitted for:

  Short-term pain and symptom management


  Imminent death

  Time for care-giving arrangements to be made


Prior to admission to The Pickering House, the Hospice Team will meet with the family 

to determine the best care plan for our patients.
