TULSA, OK -- A Tulsa organization that helps people with end-of-life care celebrates a new building.  Clarehouse held a ribbon cutting on Thursday at its new $5 million facility at 7617 S. Mingo.

Workers say the new building means they can provide care to more people and their families.

"We give the family the relief that they need at that time so they can just be there with their loved one and not have to worry about turning or medication or cleaning them or any of those other things that can just wear somebody out when they're in an emotionally-stressed situation," said Clarehouse Clinical Director Stephanie Carrico.

Clarehouse is not a hospice, but works with hospice patients unable to stay in their own homes, by providing care in a home environment.

The group started in a 3 bedroom apartment in 2003.
