The Bannister Family House at UC San Diego Health is a “haven of hope and comfort” that provides a home away from home for families of patients undergoing long-term care at UC San Diego Health in Hillcrest and La Jolla due to serious injury or illness. The non-medical atmosphere of the house provides a needed break from the stress of keeping a constant bedside vigil at the hospital.
Coming home to a prepared meal brightens the day and lessens the load for our guests. Through hosted meals, families have a chance to connect and share their feelings and experiences with others staying at the house and the people providing the meal. Meals may be prepared in advance or cooked at the house by you or your volunteer group.
