Grace Home

A sacred place of healing

About Grace Home

Previously located adjacent to the CHRISTUS Schumpert Saint Mary Place campus, Grace Home was founded in 1996 as a 16-bed residential hospice designed specifically for care of the terminally ill. At the time of its opening, Grace home was the first community residential hospice in Louisiana. It was one of three residential hospices in Louisiana and the only one in Northwest Louisiana.

Grace Home provides 24-hour nursing care for its patients and receives referrals from other hospitals, hospices and physicians throughout the area.

In 2017, Grace Home transitioned to beautiful suites within CHRISTUS Highland Medical Center. These newly designed suites allow for a private room for the patient, complete with comfortable and beautiful furnishings, attached to a family suite. Both patient room and family suite have sleeper recliners, private bathrooms with walk-in showers and large-screen televisions. The family suite also has a sofa that converts to a bed, desk and chair, microwave, refrigerator and Keurig coffee machine. A lounge space is available adjacent to the suites. Reserved, front-row parking is available as well as valet services for families of Grace Home patients. Grace Home at CHRISTUS Highland provides 24-hour nursing care for patients end-of-life hospice needs.

Tribute bricks and signage placed at the former Grace Home location on Margaret Place will remain in place to offer a lasting legacy of these cherished individuals. Additional tribute signage, capturing the information from the original location, is being designed and created for installation at CHRISTUS Highland.
