In order to meet the needs of our ever changing community, Serenity Hospice & Home is committed to providing the best service possible. While we are able to provide supportive care to most people in their residence, not all are able to remain at home for this final journey. Therefore, Serenity Home was established and accepted its first patient in April 2009. Serenity Home offers the patient and family a home-like environment, while providing the full complement of Hospice’s comfort oriented care and services, including: expert pain and symptom management, 24 hour nursing care, assistance with tasks of daily living, friendly visits from volunteers, spiritual, and psychosocial counseling for patients and their love ones, and bereavement care and support for surviving family members.
Serenity Home was designed to be family-friendly with special spaces designed for the family to remain close to their loved one during this final journey. Each patient room includes a sitting/sleeping area that allows family to remain close to their loved one. Additional areas were designed to include extended family, including a family kitchen and dining area, chapel, children’s playroom, and large family room for gatherings and celebrations.
Within the Serenity Home, care is provided by professional staff to meet the needs and desires of the patients and their families with the goal of achieving comfort, peace, and dignity on their final journey.
