The only volunteer-driven, non-medical hospice in Montgomery County, CaringMatters offers (at no charge) compassionate, practical, high-quality care to those facing a life-threatening illness or mourning the death of a loved one. The Patient and Family Program offers a range of support – grocery shopping, transportation to the doctor, funeral planning – or simply visits to patients who need a friend. Specially trained volunteers guide the Good Grief Club, a bereavement group for children at county public schools; and Camp Erin provides a weekend bereavement camp for local kids. CaringMatters also offers adult groups for parents, spouses, siblings, relatives, and friends. Since 1989 over 10,000 patients, their families, and over 7,000 individuals grieving the loss of a loved one have received the support they need. CaringMatters promises patients and families that someone will always be there. You can help them keep the promise.
