Tabitha at the landing is a collaboration between tabitha and the landing and was created to de-institutionalize the "nursing home culture" from the inside out. With the belief that meaningful lives are ones with choices, our organizations set out to create a place where seniors could enjoy all the comforts of home-including the ability to direct their own care and lifestyle-and remain as independent as possible while doing so. Our innovative approach means that residents have free will to live life exactly as they please. They rise, sleep and eat at the time of their choosing. Their menu is custom-made and personally served, with 24-hour access to meals and snacks. At most mealtimes, residents and staff alike come together at the large, family-style dining table to share the warmth of food and conversation. Hobbies and leisure activities are encouraged and often become shared interests among residents. Inclusive group outings are offered frequently, but never required. Family, friends and visitors are welcome-anytime and every time. Birthdays and holidays are house-wide events-there is no shortage of celebrating here!

tabitha's hospice program provides care for terminally ill persons and their families so that the patient is able to stay at home in most situations in a comfortable environment while giving their family members an opportunity to renew and enhance their relationship to the patient and each other.

Services include medical director, visiting nurses, social workers, home health aides, spiritual counselors, consulting pharmacists and nutritionists and bereavement counselors.
