Carolyn’s House

Carolyn’s House provides 24-hour hospice care to individuals who are unable to remain at the place they call home. HCP offers residential, hospice services when personal choices or medical needs make other care options difficult.

History of Carolyn’s House

Carolyn’s House is named after a hospice nurse, Carolyn Croxton Slane, who served HCP patients and families for many years. When she was faced with a terminal illness, she sought care from our program. It was in her memory that the residence was named. In 2015, the name was changed from the Carolyn Croxton Slane Residence to Carolyn’s House, to continue to honor its namesake.
