Caregiving tends to fall hardest on the spouse, who may be elderly or in ill health too. Caregivers for terminally ill patients average about 80 hours a week providing care. The day-to-day, hour-to-hour responsibility is all consuming; add onto that the anxiety of knowing that a beloved (or not, at least familiar) person and a whole way of being are about to end, and it can be overwhelming. When hospice care starts, a significant part of that load is lifted or shared.


Capital Caring supports the caregiver in so many ways. We bring everything you might need to the home — hospital bed, bedside commode, medications, bandages, expert consults — tailored to your needs. Our care team of doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, counselors and volunteers provide physical, emotional and spiritual support allowing you to focus on your loved one.
