Falls Church, VA –   April 2, 2020 — Capital Caring Health is dedicated to meeting the needs of the growing population of older adults and those with advanced illness in Mid-Atlantic region.  The organization recently announced an expansion throughout the Shenandoah Valley and is now providing care to residents living in the City of Winchester as well as residents in Clarke and Frederick counties.

“We are committed to providing critical services to individuals with serious, advanced illnesses,” said Susan Zehner, RN, BSN, Clinical Supervisor for these new service areas. “This expansion allows us to meet the needs of patients who are dealing with serious illnesses throughout the City of Winchester, Clarke and Frederick counties. Caring for these patients in their home is vitally important, and our clinical teams are truly honored to provide the best quality care to families in the comfort of their homes.”

In light of the coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis, at home care for seniors is needed now more than ever before.  COVID-19 is most serious for seniors who are ill with one or more illnesses such as lung, heart, or kidney disease. Their risk of infection can also increase if they leave home and go to the ER or other crowded locations.  The safest way to prevent the infection is to stay at home.

As a local non-profit provider of advanced illness and hospice care, Capital Caring Health serves more than 95% of patients in their homes or wherever they permanently reside.  Learn more at www.capitalcaring.org or call our 24-Hour Care Line 800-869-2136.
