Volunteer of the Week: Caregiver is there for those in need
For those who have been exposed to hospice care, it’s a sure bet they are big supporters of the local nonprofit organization, Hospice of the Chesapeake.
Hospice is primarily a concept of care for patients and their families facing a life-threatening illness. Hospice emphasizes quality rather than quantity of life. The dying are comforted, professional medical care is given and sophisticated symptom relief is provided.
