The Healing Lodge will have a full-time Care Counselor to help make patient stays a less stressful and more comfortable healing experience.

By providing special programming, learning aids, a video and lending library, as well as workshops on such important health topics as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, substance abuse, diet, and exercise, the Lodge will function as a health incubator by promoting self-healing and health education.

The facility will be equipped with a commercial kitchen and provide transportation services and elder care for patients staying with us.
