I know what you’re thinking… who could really need such a large home? The answer is, ‘maybe you or someone you love’. No this home isn’t for sale, the above was my semi-clever attempt at getting your attention so I could tell you about a huge FresYES… Terry’s House!
It’s natural and encouraged for families and loved ones to be bedside as the patient recovers, but being far from home can make it difficult for loved ones to stay strong themselves. Many can’t afford hotel rooms and restaurant meals for long stretches of time; That’s where Terrys’ House comes in. The house is located across the street from Community Regional Medical Center and has all the amenities of home for the families of those in need; Including private baths, phones, refrigerators, computers with internet, exercise rooms, and an activity room with books and games to help children stay occupied.
In addition and probably more importantly there are people at the home who extend a hand to guests in becoming familiar with the neighborhood, help make travel arrangements, get groceries, and provide assistance wherever it may be needed.
While researching Terrys’ house I spoke with various medical providers that told me that there is an improved patient outcome when they are surrounded by people they know, trust, and love. That It not only reduces patients’ anxiety and stress, but it also reduces their sense of isolation, confusion, and loss.
This month Terry’s House is celebrating its 1 year anniversary of providing a home-away-from-home for families of patients in critical condition. Terry’s House is entirely dependent on charitable contributions and those who donate do so in variety of different ways. Some donate a gift in kind like food coupons or daily necessary household items for those in residence. If you feel so inclined in this new year please give them a call at (559) 459-2670 or email House Manager Denise Goodman at firstname.lastname@example.org
