"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.
