Hospice patients most often choose to remain at home. However, a growing number find that at the end of life they are unable to manage alone or need more than a frail spouse can provide. Suddenly, home is no longer the safest place to receive hospice care. A study commissioned by the Coastal Hospice board confirms the unmet need for a hospice residence. And so we are building The Macky & Pam Stansell House of Coastal Hospice at the Ocean in Berlin, on Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore. Here patients and their families will receive the medical, spiritual and emotional support they need. They will be safe. They will feel at home.
