Founded in 1993, Compassionate Care Hospice is a community-based organization committed to providing the highest quality hospice care to patients, their families and close friends through-out Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, South Dakota and Texas. We care for terminally ill patients with a wide range of illnesses including cancer, advanced cardiac disorders, advanced neurological disorders, AIDS, ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), Multiple Sclerosis and any end stage disease. At Compassionate Care we are committed to quality of life, which enables patients to remain in the comfort and privacy of their own homes, with their loved ones. We proved the special care and services that make that choice possible. Our program proved the following services based on each patient's individual needs: Physician care, nursing care, social work services, spiritual counseling, volunteer support, nutritional counseling, physical, speech and occupational therapy, assistance with personal care, meals and light housekeeping, medication, oxygen and medical supplies, 24-hour at-home care during a crisis, short-term respite care, short-term acute in-patient care and bereavement support and grief counseling.
First of all I cant believe that no one has commented on this cause. I would recommend it because it is such a humane cause, who wouldnt love to make someone as comfortable as possible in their final months, and doing such simple things like, conversation, making a meal, writing a letter, running an errand, cleaning up, playing a game, reading a book, so many simple things for us that mean the world to someone else, I think it is wonderful and I would love to locate this organization close to my home
