Caroline Hospice Home now open for Patient Care
The Caroline Hospice Home located at 613 S. 5th Avenue in Denton is now open for
patient care. Caroline Hospice Foundation owns the building that houses this
three-bed residential hospice center. Patient care and family support is provided by
the staff of Compass Regional Hospice, the sole provider of hospice care in Caroline
County and also in Queen Anne's and Kent Counties.
"Re-opening the Caroline Hospice Home allows us to expand the services we have been
providing in Caroline County since the state approved us to be the sole provider of
hospice services in 2014," says Heather Guerieri, RN, MSN, CHPN, executive director,
Compass Regional Hospice. "Now, in addition to providing hospice care in private
residences, nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Caroline County, we have
a residential hospice center for people who choose this level of care."
Each of the three private patient rooms at the Caroline Hospice Home
in Denton is equipped with a flat screen TV, personal refrigerator and
comfortable seating for visitors (click on picture for larger image size).
Guerieri adds, "We are grateful to the Caroline Hospice Foundation for the
investment they have made in renovating this beautiful hospice center and for what
they will continue to do to raise funds we rely on to provide exceptional patient
care for the people of Caroline County."
Renovation of the Caroline Hospice Home was funded by Caroline Hospice Foundation.
Heidi Plutschak, director of Caroline Hospice Foundation, says, "We 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 in private rooms. All
patient rooms are equipped with flat screen TVs, personal refrigerators and
comfortable seating for visitors. The residential hospice center has a new, spacious
kitchen in which patient meals are prepared by Compass Regional Hospice staff and
specially trained volunteers.
A cozy library offers privacy for family consultations and individual and group
counseling. 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.
