"Comfort and Care for our Community"






Caroline Hospice Home now open for Patient Care

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I am excited to announce that we re-opened the Caroline Hospice Home on September 22. We operate this residential hospice center in partnership with Compass Regional Hospice, whose staff provide nursing care for hospice patients around the clock. The Compass team of social workers, grief counselors, chaplain and volunteers also visit patients and families at the Caroline Hospice Home, bringing comfort and professional expertise in the art of living well and saying goodbye.

This year, the beautiful Caroline Hospice Home, which is owned by the Caroline Hospice Foundation, received a $96,000 facelift to meet State of Maryland requirements for residential hospice centers. On behalf of the Foundation Board I thank the many people of our community who donated their time, materials, and expertise to make it possible for us to complete extensive renovations over the last 12 months.

The Caroline Hospice Home can accommodate three patients, each in a private room. All patient rooms are equipped with flat screen TVs, personal refrigerators and comfortable seating for visitors. We installed a new, spacious kitchen in which patients meals are prepared by Compass Regional Hospice staff. A cozy library offers privacy for family consultations and counseling for individuals and groups. The living room and dining area designed around a gas fireplace is a gathering space for visitors and guests. The chapel is available for private reflection and prayer.

The Caroline Hospice Foundation provides financial support to Compass Regional Hospice to help offset the cost of providing care for all patients served in private residences, nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Caroline County and at the Caroline Hospice Home. The Foundation is also responsible for maintenance of the home and for the cost of utilities and other facility operating expenses required to create a safe and welcoming environment for patients and their visitors.

The Caroline Hospice Foundation board of directors are committed to maintaining this beautiful home that will be a welcome resource for Compass Regional Hospice patients. We are most grateful to Compass Regional Hospice for helping us make our dreams come true.

As you make your year-end gift giving list I ask that you include Caroline Hospice Foundation. Your donation will stay in Caroline County to ensure that hospice services are available to the people of Caroline County whenever and wherever they need care.

Thank you once again for opening your hearts for your friends and neighbors. We wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Many Blessings,
