Caring Comfort FAQ's
What type of service does this program offer?
Caring Comfort offers specially trained, experienced, and caring volunteers to provide non-medical aid and support, including: emotional support, light housekeeping, food preparation, errands, and short daytime respite "breaks" for the caregiver.
Our Volunteer Coordinator serves as the case manager. A visit from our Social Worker and Pastoral Coordinator are also available.
I have a terminal illness but am still seeking treatment; am I eligible for this type of support?
Yes. Individuals receiving Caring Comfort services can concurrently undertake curative medical treatments.
Where is the volunteer support provided?
Services are provided in the individual's residence and include the involvement of family members participating in the person's care.
How is the Caring Comfort program different from regular hospice services?
The Caring Comfort program is unique because it provides services to people who are receiving curative treatment, who have an estimated prognosis of one year or less, and who are having difficulty coping with their illness.
