  • "Our family would like to thank everyone involved in my husband's care. You helped us to fulfill his final wish and make his final journey from home. You are all amazing and special; you took great care of him as well as his family."

  • "Your caring staff is so valuable to families during critical times. Your support is very comforting and appreciated. We are truly grateful."

  • "We were blessed with the loving care you gave our Dad. The nurse was great and treated him like he was part of her family. We are forever grateful for all of you. Thank you."

  • "To the Hospice folks, words cannot express our thanks and appreciation for your tender touch and loving professionalism during our Dad's illness. We will always remember our nurse's expert skills and abilities as well as her personal touch. "

  • "We want to thank everyone who cared for our Mother. Everyone was so nice and caring and went over and beyond what we could have hoped for. Thank you all."

"If I could do anything differently, it would be to have called hospice earlier."

Hospice is a professional care service provided to those with a serious illness. When the focus of your care moves to controlling symptoms, the CareFirst Hospice Team comes to you to provide medical care and other assistance that will keep you comfortable and at home.

For more than three decades, the CareFirst Hospice team has brought skilled medical care directly to patients -- whether at home, in a nursing home, or in another residential facility.

Our assistance is not about replacing your support system, it is directed towards helping family and friends get the skills and support they need to care for you at home. Your own doctor remains in charge, and you and family continue to make the decisions.

Hospice services are most effective when support can begin at the earliest point. The goal of the CareFirst Hospice team is to have you and your family “know” us and see how we work so that we can be there as changes occur.

By bringing to your home everything that you may need, CareFirst helps you stay with your family. We care for the entire family, providing comfort, education and support, giving you all the chance to make the most of every day.
