Where once stood a Wells barn today stands a modern building, Patrick Place, the newest and tenth Comfort Care Home to serve people who are in the final stages of life.
Even though opened May 2018, Patrick Place has been a labor of love for nearly 15 years. It was back in 2008 that a group of Catholic parishes, Five Saints West (5SW), comprised of St. Mary of the Assumption (Scottsville), St. Columba-St. Patrick (Caledonia), St. Vincent de Paul (Churchville) and St. Christopher in (North Chili) started discussions around the feasibility of a Comfort Home to serve towns south and west of Rochester.
Known locally as Homes for the Dying, each two-bedroom Comfort Care Home works on the same model: no-cost end-of-life care provided in large part due to the enormous role of volunteers.
Patrick Place is able to serve two patients at a time, each in a modern, spacious bedroom with an attached bathroom. Patients, who have three or fewer months to live, are encouraged to make it feel as home-like as possible; families are encouraged to be part of the process.
Patrick Place provides love and support for the terminally ill in a home-like setting. Patrick Place allows them to live out their lives with the freedom to spend time with their loved ones; to talk, share and grieve.
