Maitri (pronounced "my-tree") is Sanskrit for "compassionate friendship." We believe that no one should have to suffer, transition, or die alone.
Maitri Compassionate Care is a 15-room licensed Residential Care Facility for the Chronically Ill in the Castro that provides compassionate residential care to people with HIV/AIDS who are in need of 24-hour medical or mental health care for hospice, respite/restoration, or gender-affirmation support. We seek compassionate individuals to provide emotional support to residents by escorting them to doctor's appointments, taking them out for coffee, reading by their bedside, or sitting with someone who is actively dying.
