The Chrysalis Room
A Sacred Space at End of Life

“Chrysalis is the stage of stillness in which a caterpillar transforms into a butterfly.”

At Central Baptist Village we recognize a need for an end-of-life experience that honors and comforts residents and their families—and we offer a comprehensive and thoughtful way to fulfill that need with our Chrysalis Room.

Created by specialists in palliative care and a team of designers, the Chrysalis Room provides a serene, comfortable, and sacred space dedicated to a quality, end of life experience for residents and their loved ones.  Staff members and volunteers have been trained and empowered to fully embrace the end-of-life experience and to make it as meaningful as possible.

butterflyA Sacred Journey

In the Chrysalis Room family members, staff, and other residents are invited to participate in the end-of-life process and support the dying through their sacred journey. All community members are welcome to visit the Chrysalis Room and sing, pray, hug, cry, share memories, and go above and beyond as needed.

This new emphasis allows staff to honor the resident who is dying in addition to providing a high standard of palliative care in a comfortable, home-like setting.

Music Therapy through Comforting Hymns

Also supporting families and residents at end-of-life is our music therapist and the Threshold Singers, providing the gift of singing as a healing presence through soothing and comforting songs.

By providing the Chrysalis Room, fewer residents are transferred to a hospital for end-of-life care .

We provide a compassionate alternative with strong emotional support, palliative care, and clinical expertise. Unike typical long-term care private rooms or accommodations for hospice patients, CB Village offers more than a room.

 

We provide well-established procedures supported by a deep commitment from the entire community for the time-honored ritual of keeping vigil.
