Serenity House is our 18-bed inpatient hospice house that provides care for hospice patients whose needs cannot be met at home.

Hidden on a hillside among Santa Barbara’s majestic coastal oaks, it’s a place where our patients are cared for in a serene and homelike setting. Each private room allows patients to be surrounded by loved ones throughout their time with us. Serenity House provides round-the-clock medical care from a team of specially trained doctors, a nurse practitioner, nurses, social workers, spiritual counselors, hospice aides and volunteers that support emotional, spiritual and practical concerns.
