Compass Regional Hospice – Events for August & September

Share

Since 1985, Compass Regional Hospice has been dedicated to supporting and helping people through the difficult and challenging time of living with a life-limiting illness. What began as an all-volunteer organization has since developed into a visionary, state-of-the-art organization recognized locally, regionally and statewide for its excellence.

In addition to our home hospice and bereavement care programs, we offer Bridges, a non-medical supportive care program for individuals who are transitioning to the next level of care or are not yet ready for hospice. When care in a patient’s home is not possible, our six-bed Residential Hospice Center offers a clinically supportive environment in a home-like setting.

Compass Regional Hospice is a fully licensed, independent, community-based non-profit organization certified by Medicare and the State of Maryland, and accredited by the Joint Commission. It is affiliated with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Hospice & Palliative Network of Maryland.
