Donate Now >

The nature of providing patient care often places stress on caregivers. During any health care crisis, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, our caregivers need opportunities to foster resiliency, manage stress, and maintain positivity.

With this in mind, French Hospital is creating a Serenity Room for caregivers and hospital staff – a calming, private space designed to provide the opportunity for relaxation, self-reflection and self-careThe creation of the Serenity Room will provide a much needed refuge at the hospital, allowing caregivers to manage stress and improve their wellbeing. By caring for themselves, our caregivers will be even better equipped to care for others.

The Serenity Room will provide the equipment, tools and relaxing space needed for self-care and self-reflection during break times. This includes:

  • A calming environment featuring soft lighting, plants and soothing décor with relaxing music available
  • Body movement area for yoga or stretching
  • Meditation area with mediation cushions and tools to promote relaxation
  • Massage area with a massage chair or a recliner accompanied by massage devices
  • Aromatherapy area to stimulate the senses
  • Self-reflection area and serenity area for journaling, self-affirmation and more
