Opening in the summer of 2014, Sussman House will provide hospice care in a home-like setting on the Pen Bay Healthcare campus in beautiful Rockport, Maine.
This exciting project will expand the high quality advance care services already provided by Pen Bay Healthcare and Kno-Wal-Lin Home Care & Hospice and will be available to patients and families throughout Midcoast Maine.
Sussman House will provide care for people whose symptoms are not well managed at home and are in need of hospice care as they near the end of their life. In addition to caring for terminally ill patients, Sussman House staff will also provide support and hospitality for families who are grieving and want to be with their loved ones during their final days.
Sussman House will provide state of the art pain and symptom management combined with compassionate care, away from the hustle and bustle of a hospital or a rehabilitation facility. The atmosphere will be one of peace and tranquility and the interior design and furnishings will “look like, act like, and feel like home.”
