Serenity House is our 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 caredfor 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.
Integrated Therapies include soothing practices such as guided imagery, gentle reflexology, mindfulness practice, reiki and aromatherapy. These therapies increase comfort and provide a sense of well-being.
Through the use of multiple music experiences, the Elly Nadel Music Therapy Program provides support to patients, family members and loved ones, helping to reduce stress, improve relaxation and decrease physical pain and discomfort.
