Bannister Family House

A home away from home.

The Bannister Family House provides a home away from home for families of patients undergoing long-term care at UC San Diego Health System in Hillcrest and La Jolla. The non-medical atmosphere of the house provides a retreat from the stress of keeping a constant bedside vigil at the hospital. Families have a chance to meet other families in similar situations and develop a support network necessary to help a loved one through serious illness.
