One of the most basic issues for end-of-life care is determining where your needs will best be met. If home is not the best option, what would make you and your loved ones feel most cared for and comfortable?
The Center for Comfort Care and Healing has 12 private suites, a multitude of amenities, and accommodates families for overnight stays. The Center provides patients and their families options for the highest quality hospice care away from home, while supporting their personal needs and respecting their individuality.
The Center’s hospice and palliative-care-trained medical directors, physicians and APRNs are available 24/7. In addition to nursing and palliative care, the team provides emotional, spiritual and volunteer support, as well as a host of complementary therapies including massage, Reiki, music and a Pet Partner Program.
Some families find comfort and serenity in their private suite with their door closed. Others make every inch of our beautiful Center their home.
Most families need both — precious privacy for quiet times of sharing, and sunny open spaces to welcome family and friends, engage with our staff and volunteers, celebrate a birthday, eat a favorite meal or relax in our garden.
“From the years I have worked in hospice care, I know that the responsibility for a loved one’s care can be emotionally and physically draining. Sometimes patients would rather be in a setting where loved ones can instead focus on spending quality time together,”
– Deborah Ryan MSW, LCSW, ACHP-SW, Chief Clinical Officer of Regional Hospice
