Empowering those in need from ground up

Some research has shown that terminally ill people who get palliative care have increased chances of recovery and a shot at a better quality of life. This type of care service work alongside medical professionals to alleviate the patient’s treatment symptoms. Highly flexible, palliative care may be different for every patient depending on the progression of the disease.
At The Sarah Carson House, we continually strive to improve the quality of life of our homeless, terminally ill patients. Involving a variety of care services, these programs may be geared towards managing the pain and symptoms of fatally ill homeless people depending on case to case requirement; moreover, these services are always provided in collaboration with other local organizations. All programs are rolled out according to palliative care best practices for a dignified recovery.
End of Life care
Driven by the belief that everyone deserves to pass away with dignity, we offer a space to people nearing the end of their life with nowhere to go. We also administer programs, in cooperation with other community organizations, directed towards improving the physical and mental well being of our guests so that they may spend the remainder of their days in peace.
Empathetic towards the plight of people and families touched by terminal diseases, The Sarah Carson House also offers grief support. Witnessing your loved one in a critical condition is very stressful and can have a lasting impact. Similarly, survivors of illnesses such as cancer usually have a changed outlook on life and may require grief support to find new meaning.
Our grief support groups bring together people who lack adequate support systems and social connections to get back on their feet. From counseling to connecting you with individuals going through a similar phase in life, our goal is to empower people at this critical juncture of life.
