Santa Barbara, Calif., Feb. 14, 2018 — For more than 40 years, Hospice of Santa Barbara has been privileged to support individuals in our community who are struggling with life-threatening illness or coping with the loss of a loved one.
More recently, Hospice of Santa Barbara is excited to announce that we will support the Carpinteria community more locally through Compassionate Care of Carpinteria (CCC), an initiative that provides care services free of charge to our community members on site in Carpinteria.
This new program focuses on adults who are facing life-threatening illness or may be working through grief after experiencing the death of a loved one. These patients and their families receive care management, in-home evaluation and support, emotional support, coordination of care, respite care, and caregiver bereavement support, and can take part in local education workshops.
Compassionate Care of Carpinteria is also offering a variety of bereavement services including individual, group, and family counseling programs. Compassionate Care of Carpinteria’s services are offered to both children and adults free of charge and are also available in Spanish.
In addition, Compassionate Care of Carpinteria is partnering with the Carpinteria Unified School District to provide counseling services to students enrolled at Carpinteria High School, Rincon High School, and Canalino Elementary School.
“Through our many years of service, we’ve been proud and grateful to support families throughout South Santa Barbara County,” said David Selberg, CEO of Hospice of Santa Barbara. “With our Carpinteria office open, we feel we can make an even bigger impact on the community we serve.”
Services are currently being offered and Compassionate Care of Carpinteria has opened an office in the Carpinteria Children’s Project. For more information on receiving services or how to get involved, please call (805) 563-8820 or visit www.compassionatecareofcarpinteria.org.
Hospice of Santa Barbara provides professional counseling, support groups, and patient care services free of charge to individuals and families who are grieving the death of a loved one or experiencing the impact of a serious illness.
