How are “Comfort and Care” funds allocated? Comfort and care funds are used as a last resort option for patients who are experiencing challenges related to their care. These may be related to delays in discharge, costs of parking or medication, stocking compassion carts, providing dental work, travel costs (such as a ride home after being discharged) and virtually anything that provides psychosocial comfort. Social workers follow a process to ensure that funds are allocated only to those who have demonstrated a need and who have exhausted other options available to them.
