Palliative Care for Seniors in Silver Spring, Chevy Chase and Surrounding Areas in MD

The Certified Palliative Care program from Visiting Angels is designed to focus on the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of senior clients in Silver Spring, Chevy Chase, Rockville, Besthesda and the surrounding areas of Maryland

This specialized program is designed to provide comfort and improve the overall quality of life of the patient. Although always interchanged with hospice care, both terms are different. While hospice care is given to those who are nearing the end of life, palliative care is given to anyone who needs care no matter what their life expectancy is.

This program provides a holistic approach when it comes to the care of your loved ones. This means that aside from looking after the basic physical needs of the elderly, it also aims to provide their social, emotional, and spiritual needs. At Visiting Angels, our caregivers are available to provide meaningful care and support to your loved one when they need us most. We also provide 24-hour home care for seniors who need more comprehensive care.
