  • Palliative Care

    The Palliative Care Program at St. Patrick’s Home embraces the concept of treating each resident’s pain from the moment he/she is admitted. It assures an identified, coordinated, and comprehensive approach to providing care.

    "On entering the facilities served by the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, all residents are placed on a Palliative Care program. This program provides an assessment of each resident’s five areas of pain: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and familial. Palliative Care seeks to provide relief from the five domains of pain that all persons experience when faced with a debilitating diagnosis. Palliative Care is not reserved for those who are imminently dying. Palliative Care allows each resident to receive the appropriate treatment that brings him/her comfort and the best possible care. Palliative Care can be combined with curative care or with less aggressive care. Palliative care is not the same as Hospice Care or End of Life Care, which is reserved for those who are imminently dying. "*

  • Memory Support

    The 4th Floor “Parlor” at St. Patrick’s Home provides care for residents with Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. Our goal is to enrich and improve the quality of life of our residents by providing them with creative programs in a controlled environment. Staff members have received specialized training from the Alzheimer's Association. The program focuses on sensory stimulation, memory recall, and motor skills. Staff members are in the room at all times to interact and stimulate each resident, using music, dance, exercise, cognitive games, crafts, sports and food activities.

  • Pastoral Care

    The Pastoral Care Department provides religious services to all residents, family members and staff regardless of their religious affiliations.

    The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is celebrated daily in our Chapel.  For those who are unable to attend, Holy Communion is distributed daily.  A Spanish/English Mass is celebrated monthly. The Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of the Sick are available.

    Religious and spiritual services are offered for all residents regardless of their denomination to provide spiritual comfort and guidance in their daily lives.

    The Carmelite Sisters and the staff provide support to the residents and their family members in times of loss including sickness and suffering.  In following our mission, we strive to offer hope, healing and comfort.
