Guide to Comfort Care Homes in New York State

Circle Home: Part of an Established & Growing Social Movement

“A community-sponsored Home is so needed here. We have a lot of patients who do not want to die in an institution, but for a multitude of reasons cannot go home.”

Holly Llobett, MD, Director of Palliative Care Health Alliance Hospital
