Criteria for Admission:

  • Diagnosis of terminal illness, enrolled in hospice and a prognosis of 3 months or less.
  • Do not resuscitate order (DNR); no life sustaining measures to be done.
  • Understand the JNP Home is staffed primarily by volunteers, both male & female.
  • Understand that the JNP Home is NOT a medical facility, care provided as “family” would provide for their own loved ones.
  • No extraordinary care needs; we must be able to provide safe & comfortable care that can be managed by staff and volunteers. We are unable to provide IV therapy, feeding tubes, or manage difficult behaviors.
  • Admission decisions are not based on age, creed, color, ethnic background, sexual orientation, or religious beliefs.
  • With the above criteria in mind, resident selection is based on the person with the greatest need and fewest options.
