How can ZenCare Help You?

If you are facing loss, isolation, or a challenging life transition, our trained contemplative caregivers can provide support, comfort and compassion. A ZenCare team member will visit you at home, hospital or hospice. Our grief and bereavement support is held on site at NYZCCC.

A Contemplative Approach to Care

NYZCCC offers relationship-centered support, using the caregiver’s training and practice as the primary source of loving action. Contemplative caregivers seek to understand causes of suffering and to explore and nurture sources of strength such as resilience and compassion.

The ZenCare Team

Each member of our team has completed extensive training at NYZCCC averaging 600 educational and clinical hours. Many hold advanced degrees in related fields such as Social Work, Nursing, Psychology, Gerontology, and Pastoral Care and Counseling.
