The Comfort House is a calming, homelike setting for patients who need around the clock nursing care for management of pain, shortness of breath or other symptoms resulting from terminal illness. The goal of inpatient hospice care is to stabilize the patient so they can return home with routine hospice care.
When hospice patients need aggressive symptom management, inpatient care can be provided until those symptoms are controlled and the patient can return to their place of residence.
Respite care is also provided to hospice patients when caregivers need a temporary break from the demands of full-time care giving.
There are six private patient rooms with bathroom facilities and sitting/sleeping areas for the patient families. Each room has access to sunshine and a covered porch through French doors wide enough to accommodate a bed. The rooms have electric fireplaces, televisions, homemade quilts on the beds and leather recliners.
