VON Oxford believes that every person has the right to face the last stages of life free of pain, surrounded by loved ones and in the setting of their choice whenever possible. We believe that each individual and family is unique and their beliefs, values and cultures should be affirmed and treated with dignity and respect.
We believe that every day is a gift.
Our goal is to provide another high quality option for end-of-life care in Oxford County for any person facing a life-limiting disease and who is unable to die in their own home. We will continue to strive to ensure that individual choices are respected, allowing life to be lived fully until death in the setting of their choice.
Our goal is to ensure that the Sakura House environment feels like home for the person who is living their last days or weeks with us, and that their family and friends also feel welcome and supported.
