Circle of Friends for the Dying
The Mission of Circle of Friends for the Dying (CFD) is to bring compassionate, competent end of life care to the dying and their families. CFD, a not-for-profit organization, will oversee the establishment and maintenance of a home like residence with an emphasis on comfort and quality of life for the terminally ill with a prognosis of three months or less to live. The home becomes the primary residence for individuals who can no longer safely remain in their own home or who prefer an alternative to spending one’s last days in a nursing home or hospital setting.
There are approximately 25 of these “Comfort Care Homes for the Dying” in northern New York State. CFD is now raising the finances and searching for a suitable site for Ulster County’s first Home for the Dying.
