Mission

The end of life deserves as much beauty, care, honor and respect as the beginning. At Caring House, we provide a caring and peaceful end-of-life alternative, where family and friends can spend their time supporting and connecting with their loved one, and each other. Caring House is a non-profit, home-based setting completely focused on helping residents and their families through the end-of-life journey - the first and only one of its kind in Los Angeles County. We provide peace of mind as we lovingly care for our residents and their families - assuring peace, comfort, support and dignity at the end of their life/their loved one's life. Our caregivers and volunteers alike say it is a privilege and often their favorite part of the day to help residents and families during this time.

Peace at the End of Life

Everyone deserves to experience peace at the end of life. Caring House exists to ease the burden often associated with caring for a loved one at the end of life and/or spending it in a facility. Our goal is to make it a peaceful, dignified experience filled with connection and reflection.

We provide peace of mind as we lovingly care for our residents and their families - assuring peace, comfort, support and dignity at the end of their life/their loved one's life - in a calm and compassionate home-based setting with five private bedrooms designed for peace, tranquility and dignity.
