BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Since 1977, St. Francis Reflections Lifestage Care has served as Brevard’s only independent, not-for-profit comfort care resource, helping patients and those they love during the most delicate times in their lives.
Founded on the principle of neighbors helping neighbors, St. Francis Reflections Lifestage Care offers a diverse range of compassionate care services including palliative care, pediatric palliative care, hospice, and grief support for all ages.
St. Francis’ care for children is a treasured aspect of our mission. Our compassionate staff embraces the child who is in need of care and the child’s family.
St. Francis Reflections Lifestage Care provides specialized care for children in two distinct and supportive programs, St. Francis Reflections Children’s Palliative Care program and St. Francis NorthStar Child Grief Support program.
Pediatric Palliative Care services reflect a specialized program designed especially for children with complex illnesses.
Children receive palliative care services in the comfort of their own homes, often while also seeking curative treatments through specialty hospitals and clinics outside of Brevard County. We are pleased to offer this layer of support for children and families in need of comfort.

St. Francis NorthStar Child Grief Support program is a free program for children, open to the community in which child grief specialists provide a safe and welcoming space for children to express their grief through peer support groups.
Dr. Chapman received his bachelor’s degree from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, and his medical degree from Nova Southeastern University School of Osteopathic Medicine.
He completed his residency in internal medicine at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, where he also completed a Hospice and Palliative Medicine fellowship.
Dr. Chapman is board-certified in Internal Medicine and Hospice and Palliative Medicine. He maintains professional associations with the American Medical Association and the American College of Physicians.
In his free time, Dr. Chapman enjoys golfing, traveling the world, and spending time with his family, including his wife, a physician associate.
“I am thrilled to join a hospice and palliative care organization that puts the patient at the center of its treatment plans,” said Dr. Chapman. “St. Francis gives its providers the time to fully understand what matters most to their patients, so we can build a treatment regimen with their considerations incorporated.”
