"Comfort and Care for our Community"

Caroline Home for Hospice

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

For near 30 years Caroline Hospice Foundation has kept pace with the changing field of hospice care by adapting our mission to meet the needs of our community. In the fall of 2014 we updated our mission once again.

We are now focused on one essential task - providing the financial support needed so that exceptional hospice care and grief support is available to the residents of Caroline County.

Another change we are proud to announce is that we now collaborate with Compass Regional Hospice (formerly Hospice of Queen Anne's), an independent, non-profit hospice provider recognized as a leader in both hospice care and grief therapies for nearly three decades.

This collaboration with Compass Regional Hospice adds services that are now available in Caroline County through the Hope & Healing Center. Skilled counselors provide grief support not only to hospice families but also to people of all ages who have experienced a significant loss. The Hope & Healing Center programs include individual and group counseling, support groups, and workshops for adults, teens and children.

Like all non-profit hospice providers, Compass Regional Hospice depends on donations from the community to close the gap between the actual cost of providing care patient care and payments received from Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance.

That's where the Caroline Hospice Foundation thru your generous donations pay for hospice services in the community and the expenses pertaining to the home.

The funds we raise make it possible for the Compass Regional Hospice physicians, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, chaplain and volunteers to be available throughout Caroline County in private homes, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities. The residents of Caroline County continue to be welcome in the Compass Regional Hospice Center in Centreville for residential hospice and general inpatient care.

The Caroline Hospice Foundation's fundraising efforts are also focused on re-opening the three-bedroom residential Hospice Home that we own in Denton. Our goal is to open the Hospice Home sometime in 2015 for patient care that will be provided by Compass Regional Hospice. Follow the progress we are making on Facebook.

As the time for re-opening of our Hospice Home approaches, we ask you to make a gift that will be used to ensure that the people of Caroline County receive quality hospice care and grief services whenever they are needed. As always your gift will remain in Caroline County to serve the residents within our community.

Thank you once again for opening your hearts.
