Palliative Care is a medical specialty that relieves symptoms and improves quality of life for people of any age, at any stage in an advanced illness, whether that illness is curable, chronic, or life-limiting. Our expert staff physicians and nurse practitioners will work with you and your doctors to control discomfort.
When adjusting with the diagnosis of a serious illness, it is common to experience feelings of loss, emotional distress, and depression. Living with a progressive disease is difficult, and it can cause tremendous strain on patients and families. We want you to know you are not alone.
More than 98 percent of our patients receive their hospice care at home. Still, many people are surprised to learn that entering hospice care doesn’t necessarily mean moving out of your house. Every patient has different needs and our care plan is tailored to your circumstances, the reality of your medical condition and your personal preferences.
Every child is precious and every moment with them matters. So when children face chronic, life-limiting medical conditions, every member of the family is affected. That’s when Capital Caring knows that young patients and their loved ones need and deserve a specially tailored approach that offers compassionate, nurturing care and support…wherever a child calls home.
Capital Caring has always been at the forefront of hospice innovation, looking for more ways to support caregivers and patients with their daily routine – which is how our Tuck-In Call Program was created. Tuck-In calls provide an extra layer of support.
Our expert medical staff provide coordinated, compassionate acute care to hospice patients, primarily in their home. Sometimes, however, severe pain or other symptoms require an advanced level of care that is more effectively provided during a short stay in an inpatient hospice facility.
Since our founding in 1977, Capital Caring has been focused on providing quality care for more than 1,400 patients and their families each day. While the primary focus is on alleviating pain, anxiety, breathlessness, and all causes of distress, we also equip faith leaders and families with the tools they need to feel confident in their ability to comfort their loved ones.
