Since 1972, the St. John's Comfort Care Program has provided compassionate care and support for residents and families during the final stages of life. At St. John's Home, care focuses on maintaining comfort and honoring choices during the end-of-life experience. Here, our interdisciplinary team specializes in pain management and hospice care, all within the principles of the Eden Alternative. The 25-person Comfort Care neighborhood offers quiet private and semi-private rooms for your loved one.
In order to meet your needs, St. John's Home Comfort Care offers:
Comfort Care's hospice philosophy emphasizes quality of life and controlling pain and symptoms. Advance directives, such as living wills and health care proxy forms are encouraged. Nursing, medical, social work and pastoral care staff work with elders and families to meet emotional as well as physical comfort needs. Our specially trained staff provides counseling and locates resources to meet the social, personal, financial, and emotional needs of families and residents.
In Comfort Care, our approach is "high touch" rather than hi-tech. Services may qualify for Medicaid, Medicare and other insurance coverage.
