Description of the Ministry:

Advent House is an outreach ministry of Perinton Ecumenical Ministries, Inc., a corporation of thirteen churches in Perinton. We are a non-profit comfort care home that provides an alternative living arrangement to the terminally ill when they can no longer be cared for in their own homes. Loving care is not only provided to them, but to their families and friends as well. We also make available bereavement services to the families of our Residents for at least thirteen months after their loved one has died.

There are no fees to our Residents and we receive no insurance reimbursement of any kind. While volunteers are indeed “the Heart of the Home”, we could not function without the support of our community through donations of materials, finances, time, prayers and participation in and support of our fundraisers. We are always accessible to our community as a resource for information or support and welcome your calls or visits.
