Who We Are
Who We Are
Comfort Homesake is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting informed and compassionate CARE for individuals and their families facing life-threatening or chronic illness. All too often individuals face these challenges alone and in silence, having to experience their greatest challenges without the comfort that comes from another caring person. We want to change that. We have dedicated our lives to educating advocates, professionals, and the community on how best to support those in need during their most vulnerable times. We provide education, training, and support to a diverse community of citizens and professionals, all doing their part to assist those in need, and we look forward to answering any questions you may have.
Advance Care Planning Is For Everyone
California Healthcare Foundation studies show 60% of people said it’s important that their family not be burdened with making end-of-life care decisions for them, but 56% have not communicated their end-of-life wishes.
82% said it is important to put their end-of-life care preferences in writing, but only 23% have done so. And equally important, 70% said they would prefer to die at home, yet 70% of people die in a hospital, nursing home or long term care facility. 80% of people say if they were seriously ill, they would want to talk to their doctor about end-of-life care. 7% reported having had an end-of-life conversation with their doctor.
