Chester River Home Care & Hospice

Home Care & Hospice


Chester River Home Care & Hospice is a Medicare-certified, state-licensed home care and hospice agency providing service in Kent and Queen Anne's Counties.

We specialize in providing quality compassionate care in the comfort of your home.

Home Care Services

The home care program offers intermittent and episodic nursing and rehabilitation services to individuals in their home. For the patient who has difficulty leaving home and who has experienced a new condition, a worsening of a pre-existing condition, had a surgery or an injury or a wound, home care is the answer. A treatment program is developed in consultation with the patient's physician to create the optimal pathway to recovery. A physician's referral is required. Home care costs are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and private insurances. Some of the many services we provide in homecare are: disease management, medication teaching, monitoring and care of wounds, rehab after a hospitalization, joint replacement or injury, IV therapy.

Hospice Services

For the patient with a life limiting illness and limited prognosis choices can be difficult. Hospice care insures that one's last months, weeks or days are spent in comfort, with dignity, and living life to the fullest. Hospice provides the patient and the family with a cafeteria of services from symptom management, spiritual and emotional support, help around the house, and bereavement counseling.

Hospice is portable and provided wherever the patient lives: at home, in an assisted living facility, in a nursing home. Hospice services are paid for by Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance. For those hospice costs not covered by insurances we receive financial support from the kind businesses, community organizations and people in our neighborhoods.

Anyone may refer someone to hospice for information and consultation. Call us anytime to arrange a confidential, non-obligatory meeting so that you and your loved ones can get the information needed to make the best decisions about care toward the end-of-life. If hospice is appropriate we will contact your physician.
