Coming Home Hospice Facilities
Coming Home Hospice (CHH) is a beautiful, home-like hospice residence located in the renovated convent of the Most Holy Redeemer Parish in San Francisco’s Castro district. The beautiful deck and multiple indoor common areas adorned with stained glass and original art are the result of the dedicated and loving work of the community. During 1985-86, volunteers contributed thousands of hours to the development, fund-raising and renovation that produced CHH. It opened its doors on March 2, 1987 as part of the Hospice Program of Visiting Nurses and Hospice of San Francisco (VN&H). The facility was remodeled in 1998.
CHH provides personalized 24-hour hospice care to clients with AIDS, cancer or other terminal illness. The focus of care is palliative. IV infusions are not provided. Residents are accommodated in 15 beds, mostly in private rooms. All resident rooms are wheelchair accessible. Meals are served in the dining room or in residents’ rooms, and are individualized according to dietary needs. There is cable TV, a VCR/DVD, and telephone as well as an extensive on-site video library. Other services include laundry, massage, and volunteer support. No smoking is permitted indoors. Friends and family are welcome and encouraged to participate in care of the residents.
