Sonoma Valley Hospital unveils a room for the dying
Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Unlike other hospital rooms, this one is as cozy as a well-kept guest room, with hardwood floors, soft wall colors and homey furniture.

Just outside the window, a bird feeder hanging from a wrought-iron hook hosts fluttering hummingbirds that bask in the Sonoma Valley sun. Outside the tall double windows, the mundane comings and goings of Third Street neighbors play out in timeless scenes.

If you know you’re dying, and you can’t do it at home, this “home away from home” is a good alternative.
