Passing with Dignity



Whether the time we spend is long or short, the passing of a resident marks us with loss.  We are honored to partner with Heart of Hospice to help ensure the final days are lived in comfort. And as caregivers, we take heart in knowing our efforts make a difference.

Dear Staff at Columbia Basin Care,

We want to express our gratitude for the loving care each of you provided. 

It was a privilege to work with you to insure that he was surrounded with love, and passed from the world with the same dignity with which he entered this life.

With caring and appreciation, 

— The Heart of Hospice Team

Harvest Party!


Our first-ever Harvest Party brought together all ages in a special afternoon event for residents, staff, friends & family.

It was a beautiful blue-sky autumn day in the Columbia Basin Care courtyard when dozens of people turned out for music, games, and mingling — along with pumpkins, pears, apples, cider, donuts, pies and more.

Pumpkin decorating was a big hit among young and old(er) and Lisa and Bill Nielsen, of music duo Willy & Nelson, set a happy vibe for friends and family to celebrate the season.
