What We Do
Bridging the gap for hospice families who have exhausted all of their options is the mission of Carolina Comfort Coalition’s Serenity House which was founded in 2007. The Mooresville and Huntersville homes, based on the comfort care model, operate through private donations as a community-based residential alternative for end-of-life care. Our commitment is to provide 24-hours a day aid to the neediest of families who have the least resources, and to care for as many patients as our four beds can accommodate. No family is ever charged a fee for our service, so we are able to serve without financial discrimination. Over 140 volunteers a week, acting as the resident’s surrogate family, work with Serenity House nurses and local hospice agencies to provide a safe and nurturing environment to those who share our home. As families become fractured and unable to stay together, we offer an opportunity for many of our residents to have the family and compassionate care that they might not have otherwise. This year we have provided quality end-of-life care for 26 Serenity House of Mooresville and 28 Serenity House of Huntersville residents. The typical length of stay by each of our residents is around 90 days which amounts to a gift of $18,000 per person. Carolinas Comfort Coalition recently received its 600th referral, highlighting the growing need for our services in the Lake Norman area.
