To establish comfort care group homes to care for those with terminal illness who are unable to remain safely at home through the final days of life.
Because we do not charge our families, we stand in faith for finances and community support of $10,000 per month to operate our comfort care home. We have been blessed even during difficult financial times with small gifts and large to meet our needs.
Adults in the North Mecklenberg and Iredell County area who are enrolled in a hospice program for end of life care. Physician must determine a 3 month prognosis and patient desires a natural end to life.
Direct beneficiaries per year:
Since our opening in October 2007, we have served approximately 25 families each year with precious care in final days of life.
Our single focus is to stand in the gap in our community for citizens who find themselves in the end of life health care system without sufficient family support to remain in their own home.

Reviews for CAROLINA COMFORT COALITION
Been a regular volunteer doing bedside care the past 3+ years at Serenity House at Mooresville and most recently at the new Huntersville location. It has been an honor and privilege to be with many wonderful individuals as they travel their final journey in this life. You will not find more dedicated and caring volunteers anywhere. What we do is not for the faint of heart. It takes physical, emotional, spiritual toughness. You receive training by experienced mentors and there are three core instructional classes providing basic personal care for residents ("Bed, Bath & Beyond" by a RN)), proper methods to move a resident without hurting yourself ("Equipped to Move" by a LPT, and, emotional and spiritual care ("Heart & Soul Care" by a staff member). There are up to two residents occupying each house at any given time. There are 50 to 60 individual volunteers at each location providing end of life comfort care for individuals under the professional direction of a Hospice. There are non-bedside volunteer opportunities as well in areas of fund-raising, gardening, housework, home repairs and clerical work. Find out more by going to www.carolinacomfortcoalition.org.

I became a volunteer @ Serenity House over 2 1/2 years ago. I admit I starting volunteering for selfish reasons, to learn to care for people during their final days in life. My in-laws are elderly and I wanted to be able to care for them if the need ever arose. I learned more and received alot of love from staff and other volunteer's as well as the many resident's at Serenity House than I ever thought possible. The staff has always been extremely helpful and each of them has become a true and dear friend. The Volunteers, oh my goodness what can I say about the many Volunteers at Serenity House? They are the most amazing people I have ever met in my entire life. Loving, caring, giving, great friends, truely amazing individuals. Serenity House touches many hearts, staff, our many Angels (volunteers), and our many residents who have passed on to a better life.

If I could make changes to this organization, I would make sure they always had the money to operate the house so they can concentrate on caring for people during their final days in life.
