The McGuire Group Journeys Program

Life is a series of journeys….childhood, school, careers, family and the unique elements that define our lives. Planning for end-of-life care should be given the same thoroughness and attention that is given to all major events in our lives. The McGuire Group Journeys program is designed to complement your plans and desires while meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs for end-of-life care.

Throughout life’s journey, we are blessed by the love and consistency of our family and friends. The McGuire Group Journeys program has been designed to compliment life’s natural canvas by creating a familiarity and continuity of care throughout your entire stay. The program addresses your needs and priorities by honoring your choices during the final stages of life. This includes appreciating and recognizing your individuality and fulfilling your wishes as they relate to comfort, care and treatments.

Our nursing facilities have been designed to meet the needs of patients and their families. Each facility includes beautifully decorated private and semi-private rooms, comfortable furnishings, brightly lit solariums, large modern dining rooms, private lounge areas for family gatherings and park-like outdoor settings.

The Journeys program also offers an opportunity for you to host a Celebration of Life event in honor of your loved one. Our program originated from the first-hand experience of our CEO, Jim McGuire, and the celebration he hosted for his mother at the end of her life. It’s our goal to assist you in planning an easy and memorable event that will serve as a special time for your loved one to reminisce, share and connect with those who are most cherished in your lives.
