About Hospice House

Hospice Support Care has provided caregiver respite, equipment and supplies to terminally ill patients living in the Greater Williamsburg Area since 1982. Assisting families caring for patients at home is the primary focus of the program. Hospice House offers 24-hour care to hospice patients for periods ranging from a few days to a few weeks. There is no charge for services provided by Hospice Support Care, whether in the patient’s home or at Hospice House.

Hospice House is a center for Hospice-related activities. With a kitchen, library and family room, and four bedrooms, each with a private bath, Hospice House functions as an extension of the patient’s home to provide periods of 24-hour respite or supportive care at the end of life. Nursing personnel staff the House around the clock. Offices and a kitchenette are located on the second floor, where a conference room and an informal meeting room provide space for individuals and support groups to meet.

The House was built by the community with funds and in-kind gifts raised through a 1999 capital campaign. Hospice Support Care services are supported by individual gifts, the United Way, local governments, civic and religious organizations and businesses. Hospice House is nestled among the trees on a large wooded lot at 4445 Powhatan Parkway, in Williamsburg, west of the Monticello Marketplace shopping center near the intersection of Route 199 and Monticello Avenue.
