Palliative/Comfort Care

Chrysalis - A Life is changing, as a cacoon to a beautiful butterflyThe goal of our Comfort Care Program is for Residents to live fully until the very end of life, with dignity and in comfort, surrounded by a circle of support. It starts on the day of admission.

Residents and Families want Quality of Life expressed in:

  • Achieving adequate pain and symptom management
  • Avoiding inappropriate prolongation of dying
  • Achieving a sense of control
  • Relieving burden
  • Strengthening family relationships

You matter because you are you. You matter to the last moment of your life and we will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.”

– Dame Cicely Saunders, Founder of the Hospice Movement
