At Hospice Caring, the point of view is simple: no patient need die alone and no family need grieve without support. The only volunteer-driven, non-medical hospice in Montgomery County, Hospice Caring offers (at no charge) compassionate, practical, high-quality care to those facing a life-threatening illness or mourning the death of a loved one. The Patient and Family Program offers a wide range of support -- grocery shopping, transportation to the doctor, funeral planning -- or simply visits to patients who need a friend. Specially trained volunteers guide the Good Grief Club, a bereavement group for children at county public schools; and Camp Caring provides the only weekend bereavement camp for local kids. Hospice Caring also offers adult bereavement groups for parents, spouses, siblings, relatives, and friends. Since 1989 over 2,000 patients, their families, and over 4,500 individuals grieving the loss of a loved one have received the support they need. Hospice Caring promises patients and families that someone will always be there. You can help them keep the promise.
