Help Hope Bloom

Be one of the 1,000 people to give or pledge $1,000 or more to help bring it home!

Aging, illness and grief touch all of us, and the fear we feel while facing these challenges can be overwhelming. The Herb & Laura May Bacon Center for Living Your Best will be a place where seniors meet friends, access a holistic approach to health care and receive life-changing support.

Because of incredible support from the community, the building is complete, but we are not done yet! We are in the final phase of the HopeBlooms campaign and we need your help to reach our community goal.

Care Continuum

The CLUB at The Bacon Center for Living Your Best

The CLUB is specially designed as a place to help seniors stay well and live their very best. A place you can meet old friends, make new friends, experience lifelong learning and enjoy activities.


PACE Program

PACE stands for Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. PACE is a Medicare program and Medicaid state option that gives community-based care and services to people 55 or older who otherwise would need a nursing home level of care. PACE was created as a way to give you, your family, caregivers, and professional health care providers the flexibility to meet your health care needs and help you continue living in the community.


Palliative Care

Know you need help but not ready for hospice? Call us – our palliative care program is here to close the gap. Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family. Through Palliative Care we offer three separate programs designed to meet the needs of our patients.


Hospice Care

Hospice isn’t about giving up hope; it’s about choosing to live well. HopeWest is here for you when someone you love is suffering with a serious illness and you aren’t sure where to turn for help. Our compassionate HopeWest Hospice doctors, nurses, counselors, chaplains and volunteers will take care of you and your family when you are ready to enter our hospice program.



We’re here to guide you after your world has been turned upside down. Grief is a natural, necessary and highly personal experience unique to everyone. While grief does not follow a timetable, it does ease over time. Facing grief and working through it, can result in newfound peace, strength, and purpose.

HopeWest offers an array of support groups where you can learn how to cope with grief and connect with others who share a common bond. 


GRIEF SUPPORT For Kids & Teens

When illness or tragedy affects a loved one, children often need help finding ways to cope with the impact. HopeWest Kids is our program for grieving children and teens. Experienced counselors also help parents learn the best way to help their children as a loved one is seriously ill or dying.



Having trust in those who care for us is important. We understand that. Learn how HopeWest is seen through the eyes of others . . .
