Compass Regional Hospice will recognize World Mental Health Day on October 10th by raising awareness and continuing our efforts to support the mental health of our patients and community members.

The diagnosis of a serious illness effects all aspects of life for both the patient and the caregiver. CRH uses a comprehensive team approach to ensure that a patient and their family receives not only the physical, but also the psychological and spiritual support they need. By focusing on all aspects of a life-limiting illness, their team of doctors, nurses, social workers, and volunteers aim to improve the overall quality of life.

As each patient’s diagnosis varies, so does their mental health treatment plan. Our nurses and social workers help identify the emotional needs of the patient and their family, and uniquely tailor their careto meet those needs.

Whether or not hospice is in place for support during a terminal diagnosis, losing a loved one can be difficult to process. Compass Regional Hospice’s specialized bereavement team can offer the support needed to navigate your grief. Throughout the mid-shore, they offer monthly support groups, one-on-one counseling, family grief camp, and therapy for children and teens in the Caroline, Kent and Queen Anne’s County school systems.

To register or to learn about grief support programs and services available through Compass Regional Hospice, contact Rhonda Knotts at 443-262-4109 or rknotts@compassregionalhospice.org.
