My Mother was there 5 days and the care she received was amazing. The compassionate and caring staff took excellent care of her during her last few days. That care allowed me to be there for my Mom instead of being stressed out as her caregiver during her final days. Sacred Ground is such a wonderful facility, the love and respect shown to her and my family was such a blessing during such a difficult time. True Angels at Sacred Ground, thank you for all you did for her!

After 4 months of Hospice Care at home, my sister began to get agitated  and unable to rest comfortably in her bed, no matter how hard we tried. I prayed for The Lord to lead us to the right care for her. He provided in the form of Sacred Ground Hospice House. The new facility had only been open two weeks, and I felt like they were there just for us! The staff was truly caring and dependable; there  was such comfort in being able to leave her and know that capable folks would be with her all night and day.  However, it was also comforting to know that we were allowed to stay with her all night and day if we chose (which we did for the last few days of her life).
There is no other place in Knoxville like Sacred Ground (I wonder if there’s another place like it in the whole world?!) it was truly a God send for us.
I’d also like to comment on the facility itself. It’s beautiful and offers great rooms and areas where families can gather and be comfortable together- which was a very important part of this process, especially at the end.
Thank God for Sacred Ground!

My husband, Bill, was in Sacred Ground for 8 days during October 2021.  He had been battling a very rare form of cancer for 18 months and, as his fight was coming to an end, I wanted a peaceful and comfortable environment for him to spend his last days.  Sacred Ground Hospice House fulfilled our needs in every way.  The facility is warm, inviting, and physically beautiful.  Each room is large and beautifully decorated with a large bathroom, comfortable couch, and table/chairs for visiting family members.  The best part of Sacred Ground is the excellent staff.  Each and every staff member was caring and compassionate to my husband, me, and our family. The care he received was exceptional, and he was always peaceful and pain free which allowed me to focus solely on quality time with him.  I feel Knoxville has been blessed with a hospice facility like Sacred Ground and I highly recommend it to any family in need of hospice care.

My sister-in-law Carolyn Koontz was a resident of  Sacred Ground Hospice for her last days.  We could not ask for better love and care given to Carolyn and her family.  Would  highly recommend this care to any family needing these services.  The staff at Sacred Ground was amazing and the facility is beautiful!  Carolyn’s boys stayed around the clock with her and was there when she took her last breath.  Thank you Sacred Ground Hospice House.

I can’t say enough about this place.  Sacred Ground was absolutely incredible for the end of my Dad’s life.  Decisions had to be made rather quickly and I honestly don’t know what we would have done without them!  Sadly when he left the hospital he was there less than 48 hours.  During this short time they were very supportive and treated him with such dignity.  The staff is wonderful and so caring and the facilities are amazing.  We have since had another family member there, and again we can’t say enough about this special place!  The name is perfect, it is truly Sacred Ground!!!

My Uncle Paul spent his last month at Sacred Ground.  This place was a Godsend to him and our whole family. My Uncle actually perked up for a little while while he was there. I think in part because it was such a nice place and everyone was so caring and friendly.   He said he could not have asked for a better place to be and he had met a lot of friends there.  He also had a bird house/feeder outside his window and he loved watching the birds. The staff was so loving and caring to my Uncle Paul.  He was such a wonderful person and I am so glad we found this place for him to spend his final days. Our family will never forget the wonderful care and compassion he received while there.

My mom was here the last 6 weeks of her life… from October 31 – December 15, 2001. The care and LOVE she received was nothing short of amazing! One of the nurses even came into her room at night with her guitar and sang hymns to her. The folks that work here are called to this service and have such a gift.

My wonderful mother-in-law spent her final months here last year. She kept the staff on their toes throughout, but each and every employee was far beyond accommodating and always went well out of their way for our whole family. We all were so impressed with the facility and care and looking back at those 3-4 months the staff really gave us our strength to push forward when all we wanted to do was just break down. Thank you all for being our sail in the winds of change and our North Star guiding us through the uncertainty when we were all turned around. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

My 24 year old son, Alex Reinerio, came here the day before he passed away from Leukemia in April 2017. He was so active and was such a health nut. It is hard to believe that he ended up with this terrible disease. From the moment we walked in to this facility, there was a peace surrounding us. We still lost the love of our lives, but we knew we were where we were cared for. The support and caring was beyond anything I could have imagined. His nurse hugged me and said, “we are gonna take care of him, and we are gonna take care of you, too!” Such a comforting place. I would not have taken him anywhere else. I know he would have loved the gardens outside his window and all the little wildlife that visited. We are so very thankful to this facility for Alex’s care and for the support that continues still for our family.

My father passed away here exactly 11 years ago today. The love and respect shown to him and my family was such a blessing. My dear friend passed there 3 years ago and she too was loved by the staff.

My mom was there 10 days. This was the best experience our family had. We got to stay with Mom and enjoy our last days in peace. I have had many family members and friends there.

My dad was in hospice care [there]. He was there for a short time and passed away last November. I cannot say enough about the staff that was there, except to call them “angels”. They were so good to my dad and to my family. They were amazing!

My husband was there seven weeks. It was the nicest place ever. They were so good to him and our whole family. I don’t think l could have made it without them. They were like Angles!!

My Mother was there four days in November 2012. She joined my Dad and her family on Thanksgiving Day. The compassionate staff took tender care of her. That care allowed me to be a daughter instead of a stressed out caregiver during Mother’s final days here. Sacred Ground is such an appropriate name because the facility is exactly that.

My wife died there in 2004. The staff was wonderful.
