"Comfort and Care for our Community"
Support Caroline Hospice!
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.
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).
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.
The Caroline Hospice Home is staffed around the clock, 365 days a year, with two
hospice nursing assistants always on duty. Other staff available as needed include
physicians, a nurse practitioner, hospice nurses, social workers and grief
counselors. The Compass Regional Hospice chaplain will be onsite regularly and
personal ministers and other clergy are welcome to visit.
The living room and dining area in the Caroline Hospice
Home give patients and visitors a comfortable place to rest, watch TV
and enjoy a meal. (click on picture for larger image size).
The facility is equipped with technology that connects staff to the Compass Regional
Hospice electronic medical record system and allows for constant communication with
the Compass Regional Hospice team members at the headquarters in Centreville.
