CARE Channel

To help you find comfort and heal faster, the Birthplace offers two special TV channels. The CARE Channel provides beautiful nature scenes and quiet music. In the evening, the scenes change from day to night with a sunset at 10 p.m. It gives you calm music and a midnight star field to help you sleep. The CARE Channel with Guided Imagery has spoken narration with nature scenes and music. A calm, quiet voice helps you relax and promotes comfort and rest.
