Loreto on the Plains Personal Care Home
"Where Prayer Makes the Difference
Giving Hope Where there is No Hope"
Loreto on the Plains Personal Care Home has 3 patient / resident rooms plus a private Guest Room. The rooms are decorated in a very welcoming, home-like style. The Blue Room is a special Guest Room for times when a family member is dying and the family desires to stay close. Sometimes the family has traveled long distances and needs a place to rest until hotel arrangements are made the following day.
There is a private chapel, which will be available 24 hrs a day for patients and families as well as the volunteers and "staff" of the Center. It is a quiet and intimate place of prayer where the one can come for comfort and healing.
Media and toy room for the children who come to visit. Thanks to the generosity of many, toys and books are available for wide range of ages. The TV is for DVD's and Video tapes provided for the children. The Nest Family entire series of scripture DVD's attract young and old.
Visiting areas where family and friends can share without disturbing the patient / resident. Also available to the patients and their families is the use of the Pope John Paul II Family Life Center
Water fountains big and little features for prayer, education or a quiet meditation walk in the Divine Mercy Prayer Gardens. Water therapy is an important aspect of this ministry.
The sights and sounds of our faith are everywhere to build hope and faith in Jesus our healer and to remind us of those who went before us.
A small corner altar alcove will be in each room where a favorite statue, image of Jesus or other spiritually uplifting object or picture may be placed to bring comfort to the patient at times when they are alone.
Other features are a large entry way, large bathrooms between rooms.
Plenty of other bathrooms for guests and children. A play ground will be available for children.

Music and TV in all bedrooms with individual controls. Music Therapy is one of the
non-drug therapies that has been recognized as alternative therapy and works wonders in reducing pain.

Office - The Office holds the brains of the operation, while the Chapel (above) holds the Heart of the Home gently in its hands.
24 hr. "Comfort Food" Bar available with opportunities for families to become involved with the provision and supervision of this special Snack Bar. Dinner will be served in the dining room or in the patient's room but always with the objective that good meals served attractively increase the desire to eat if only a nibbling of the food is taken in.
