When patients, their families and physicians agree that a cure is not probable and that comfort is the goal, Hospice of the Chesapeake helps families give care in their own special way. Respecting wishes and values, Hospice of the Chesapeake provides help for living fully in the time that remains, usually at home. If home care is not an option, Hospice of the Chesapeake can provide your care in one of its Hospice Houses or in many of the area's quality long-term care facilities.
Hospice of the Chesapeake can help persons who:
- Have any illness that is progressing;
- Have a life expectancy that is limited;
- Choose comfort care when treatments for cure are no longer effective; and
- Live in Anne Arundel or Prince George's County.
If you think Hospice of the Chesapeake can help you or someone you love you should:
