William J. Riley Memorial Residence_A9649.jpg


Families often comment on the compassion they receive when they walk through the doors of the William J. Riley Memorial Residence. However, like any 25-year-old home, our facility is in need of major infrastructure updates. The original roof, windows, furnaces, and air conditioners are showing signs of wear, as well as the bathroom fixtures and refrigerators in our patient suites. We want the William J. Riley Memorial Residence to continue as a sanctuary for those in need of our unique brand of care. We need a solid foundation to ensure it remains the premier inpatient hospice setting for future generations. The surrounding grounds are looking drab and tired.


We look forward to building partnerships that will powerfully impact patients and families in Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties in Indiana, as well as parts of bordering Will and Cook counties in Illinois. Planned Environment Associates, a landscape architect firm in Chesterton, Indiana, developed a master plan for us free of charge. The plan contains fragrance and pollinator gardens and walkways; a labyrinth which facilitates meditative and healing energy; and a flag pole with veterans’ memorial to honor the veterans who make up 25% of the individuals we serve. The outdoor areas will provide places for quiet reflection, facilitating comfort for patients and families.
