Given the right community, persons living with advanced AIDS
can continue to grow socially, emotionally and spiritually.

The House of Mercy was established in 1991 by the Sisters of Mercy to provide compassionate nursing care to persons living with advanced AIDS.  Residents are accepted with unconditional love and are cared for 24 hours a day by highly trained nurses and caregivers.

Shelia Williams enjoys Blaze, a Sheltie and member of the "paws4people" team that regularly visits House of Mercy.

At House of Mercy, care is provided to each resident based on his or her special needs and desires.  Many individuals come to House of Mercy to die in peace; others choose to aggressively treat HIV.  Services provided to residents include assistance obtaining medications, coordination of ancillary services such as physical therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy.

House of Mercy, above all else, is a home.  Each resident is given a private room with television, DVD player, and phone.  Rooms may be decorated and arranged to suit individual needs and tastes.  A spacious living room gives residents an opportunity to gather with guests.  A dining room accommodates family style meals.  In addition, there is a sunroom, a recreational room with resident kitchenette, stereo, TV and videos, a computer and bumper pool table.  A large gazebo is the centerpiece of the private backyard and gardens are kept up by residents and volunteers.

Sometimes residents, after being admitted to House of Mercy, find that their health improves due to the acquisition of medicine and routine care not previously received.  In cases where residents may be discharged, our Director of Nursing and Case Management is available to help with securing housing, health care, and resources necessary for the transition back into the community. 


House of Mercy encourages physical activities including social events and outings.  In addition to staff, volunteers assist residents in a variety of ways depending on an individual's personality and physical needs.  For desiring residents, pastoral care is provided on site or through the assistance of local churches..


Admission is based on a person's medical and social needs as well as a recommendation of their physician.

House of Mercy is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that depends on donations from individuals, companies, and foundations for 80% of its funding.
