Residential Hospice

I am blessed to help patients and families on this sacred journey.

I am Cassia

Hospice is a philosophy of care that recognizes every person deserves to live out his or her life with respect and dignity, free of pain and in an environment that promotes quality of life.

Community Health Foundation of Wright County

In 2009, CHFWC partnered with Elim Care, now Cassia, to fund a specialized end-of-life care wing to serve the residents of Wright County and the surrounding area. Thanks to the overwhelming generosity from the community, that specialized wing opened in 2014 as Lakeside Oasis and has been providing exceptional end-of-life care and services at Lake Ridge Senior Living ever since.

Today, the mission of the Community Health Foundation of Wright County is to support and help fulfill the vision of the Lakeside Oasis.

Notes from families…

It’s been two months since we said goodbye to Colleen, and I still have such wonderful memories of each and every one of you. I really do not know how we would have managed without your expertise, support and your loving kindness.


Thank you so much for the compassionate care that you provided for our mother. All of you were so wonderful at spreading peace and love during her last days.


Thank you all for being a part of mom’s life and for helping to usher her into heaven.

Highly-specialized hospice care can come to other areas of Lake Ridge from our partners, Grace Hospice and Triniti Home Health & Hospice, who bring physical, emotional and spiritual care for people with life-limiting illnesses and support for their loved ones.

These organizations will come to patients wherever they call home.
