Mission Statement

The mission of Caring House is to provide a home-away-from-home for adults receiving outpatient treatment at the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center. Staff and volunteers provide a supportive environment for patients accompanied by one or two caregivers. By easing the economic burden of extended stays during prolonged treatments and providing a setting in which guests can encourage and help each other, Caring House helps relieve the stress of difficult cancer treatment schedules.

Description

Our 12,900 square-foot building has eighteen bedrooms, each with a private bath and television. The shared facilities include three fully equipped kitchens within a larger kitchen area, dining room, great room, library, exercise room, laundry room, and a parking lot. Duke Hospital provides a shuttle service at no cost, for guests to travel to and from the hospital.
