Work with us…

Jim & Lisa’s Circle Home is a two-bed home providing comprehensive and compassionate end-of-life care for individuals living with a terminal condition, primarily in the Ulster County community. Our vision is to allow our residents, who are served by Hudson Valley Hospice, to live in a warm, loving, home-like atmosphere of support and encouragement during their final months of life. We believe in the hospice philosophy of care: all persons have the right to die with dignity, to have an enhanced quality of life for the remainder of their days, and to be as comfortable and as pain free as possible. Our primary goal is to provide comfort care, symptom control, and pain management for our residents, as well as to be a source of comfort and respite for residents’ families and friends. Circle Home offers care at no charge to our residents and their families. We operate solely on donations, memorials, fundraisers, and grants.
