(Falls Church, VA) Oct. 1, 2018 – Capital Caring is inviting visitors to explore its new website (www.capitalcaring.org) which has been redesigned to provide the ultimate user-friendly experience with improved navigation and functionality.
As one of the largest and oldest non-profit hospice and palliative care providers in the mid-Atlantic region, Capital Caring serves communities from Prince George’s County, Maryland, Virginia, including Washington, DC, and some 1,400 patients and families each day facing advanced illness.
“Patients struggling with serious illnesses and their caregivers need a special kind of care and support,” said Tom Koutsoumpas, interim CEO of Capital Caring. “They need information and guidance on the best care options tailored to their condition, that enables them to remain as comfortable and active as possible in their own home, or wherever they call home, and Capital Caring can offer them the relief and support they need,” he continued.
Visitors to the site will now have access to updated content on common medical conditions that most frequently benefit from hospice care, with downloadable brochures on topics such as Caring for a Loved One with Dementia, and How to Care for Elderly Parents. Additional new features include a Caregiver Blog, videos showcasing our special inpatient facilities, comprehensive information on how hospice care is paid for and eligibility requirements, along with opportunities to volunteer and become part of the Capital Caregiver Community.
“Capital Caring’s website will include a Community Calendar of upcoming events throughout our service area, such as movie screenings, support groups, our annual gala, and Caregiver Expo, and be updated regularly with information about our various programs and services, and personal stories about how our care teams and volunteers have made a difference in the lives of our patients and families,” said Koutsoumpas.
The newly designed website is the launch pad for Capital Caring’s enhanced digital marketing program as we seek to reach more members of our community who are unaware of the benefits of hospice and palliative care for people living with advanced and life-altering illness.
