Welcome to ABODE

ABODE provides a welcoming, peaceful home and unconditional loving care to our guests through the compassionate service of our community and volunteers.

Our Vision

Dying is a sacred time of life. Love, compassion, and a home matter to all who are dying; those whom we honor and from whom we learn. We serve the community as an educational resource in the art of contemplative living and dying.

Dear Friends,

Our new guest, looking out the French Doors of her room at ABODE onto the lush gardens outside said, "It's so beautiful!"  It is this profound beauty at end of life that sustains us to do our mission... to provide a home to welcome our guests at no charge in their final days on earth. They feel welcomed, cared for, and safe in our home, thanks to YOU and your continuing help in 2015.

Recently, our dear guest and her husband celebrated their 47th wedding anniversary at ABODE. We are so grateful to have been a part of it as staff, family and volunteers gathered to share the event.

As we plan for this new year ahead, there are many opportunities for you to help. We are starting new volunteer classes.

ABODE Contemplative Care for the Dying

PS: This beautiful passage is from a Hindu Story... 

For the Homeless Lord who gives refuge to one who surrenders, he wanted to build a beautiful abode. He never thought of his financial capacity. All that was in his mind was somehow to build an abode for the Immortal Beauty that stole away his heart.

ABODE gratefully accepts estate gifts including bequests, life insurance and retirement plans. Please call 210-967-9891 to discuss.
