Circle of Life Suites: End of Life Care

The Circle of Life Care Suites provide a comforting, peaceful environment for patients in the final stages of their lives, while also giving family members a private and comfortable place to stay as they support their loved one through the dying process. 

The Circle of Life Care consists of two suites which provide a sleeping area, along with a small kitchen/gathering area for family and friends. The suites are holistically designed, meeting and caring for the needs of the whole person; body, mind and spirit, and recognizing that the three are intertwined. When one part is in pain or distress, it has an adverse effect upon the other two.

Non-traditional therapies such as music, massage, reminiscence and aromatherapy are incorporated, making the patient and his or her family as comfortable as possible.

Health professionals, trained volunteers, family members and spiritual leaders will work in partnership to provide Circle of Life Care. The suites, in addition to the already existing chapel and enclosed garden courtyard, provide a calming environment for prayer, meditation and solace for those who are dealing with this difficult time.
