Gilchrist Services, a non-profit organization, is committed to providing the finest care and support for individuals in Central Maryland who suffer from a chronic or terminal illness. Our programs are designed to offer care that is comprehensive, coordinated and, perhaps most importantly, compassionate, and that addresses all of our patients’ and clients’ needs, whether they be medical, emotional, social or spiritual.
Gilchrist Services is an outgrowth of the success of Gilchrist Hospice Care, which has been providing the finest care through the end of life since 1994, and the identified need to broaden services for a wider population of mostly older adults – those who suffer from chronic and serious illnesses and need extra care coordination and support but may not yet be ready for or eligible for hospice.
Gilchrist Services now offers a continuum of services designed to provide education, guidance and care for patients earlier in their disease trajectory and through the end of life.
The goal of our blog is to provide you with comprehensive and inspiring information about issues that are important to our continuum of care, as well as the latest news about Gilchrist, our work in the community, events and programs and ways you can help.
