Circle of Friends for the Dying

About Us

The Mission of Circle of Friends for the Dying (CFD) is to bring compassionate, competent end of life care to the dying and their families by providing a Home and a circle of support. CFD, a not-for-profit organization, will oversee the renovation of their newly acquired house in Kingston to create a home like residence for the terminally ill with a prognosis of three months or less to live. The Home, with an emphasis on comfort and quality of life, becomes the primary residence for individuals who can no longer safely remain in their own home or who prefer an alternative to spending one’s last days in a nursing home or hospital setting. Circle Home is supported and staffed by the community with medical supervision by Hudson Valley Hospice.

Our vision is a community that openly accepts dying and death as a part of life.

All donations received on May 15th will go towards building a ramp and outside deck overlooking the reflective garden. A safe, convenient way for people who are either bedridden or unable to move about, to feel the outdoors and be in nature.
