Hospice Care

 What is Hospice?

Many ask, “What is hospice?” Hospice enhances the end of life by providing care that allows people to live their final days to the fullest, in peace and without pain, in the place that provides the most solace.

Founded in 1994, Gilchrist Hospice Care is the largest hospice in Maryland. We provide comprehensive, coordinated and compassionate care to people with life-limiting illnesses—such as cancer or end-stage heart, lung, kidney or neurological disease—as well as their families. Our team of hospice professionals and volunteers provides support that addresses all needs—medical, emotional, social and spiritual. We serve adults as well as children, focusing on helping people live life to the fullest.

Where is Hospice Care Provided?

Gilchrist Hospice Care serves the Central Maryland communities of Baltimore City and Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Frederick, Harford and Howard Counties. We bring our care to you—whether you live at home or in a residential care center—to ensure you receive the medical attention you need when and where you need it. We also provide hospice care in our Gilchrist inpatient centers.
