Whether serving their patients in private residences, skilled nursing facilities, or Compass’ residential centers in Centreville and Chestertown, staff and volunteers are guided by their mission to ensure that individuals facing end of life can live out their days in a full and meaningful way.
Compass provides a collection of grief support programs and services for the families of patients, as well as members of the community, who are grieving the death of a loved one. These services have a common focus— rekindling hope and facilitating healing. This includes support groups, one-on-one counseling, in-school support, and more. All grief support services are free of charge and funded by donations from our supporters.
Compass is a fully licensed, independent, community-based nonprofit organization certified by Medicare and the state of Maryland, and accredited by the Joint Commission. It is affiliated with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Hospice & Palliative Care Network of Maryland.
Compass’ mission is to offer comprehensive, professional and compassionate care and support to patients, caregivers and families who have found themselves facing a life-limiting diagnosis or loss.
Compass promotes dignity and quality of life through respect, compassion, trust and commitment.
