“I can’t remember all the names, but I remember the smiling faces of each person who came to assist – and I thank God for each and every one. Each a lifeline.” - A grateful family member
Capital Caring’s mission is to simply improve care. Since 1977, we have been guided by our founder, Dr. Josefina Magno’s belief, that life’s closing chapter can and should be treated with grace and dignity. As we enter our 41st year of service to the community, we are committed more than ever to help families and loved ones make the most of every moment.
Life gets easier when you seek help. Through four distinct programs, we make sure that the right care is delivered at the right time.
Palliative Care: We work with you to get your pain and symptoms under control. Our more than 20 doctors are board certified, and our nurse practitioners are licensed and certified. Neighborhood inpatient centers, located throughout the region (Arlington, Fairfax, Leesburg, and Washington, DC) provide expert 24 -hour care with the comforts of home and the medical support of a hospital.
Point of Hope Counseling: Counselors provide community counseling programs for a variety of grief and loss experiences, including bereavement counseling up to 13 months after the death of a loved one in hospice care.
Hospice Care: A coordinated team of support that includes physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice aides, and volunteers provide physical, psychological, social, and spiritual care wherever the patient lives - at home, an inpatient facility, the hospital or a nursing home.
In 2016, we were honored to help nearly 7,000 hospice patients, and over 1,800 palliative care patients. And as a nonprofit, we ensure that anyone who needs our services can access them regardless of ability to pay. Through that commitment, we provided more than $3.3 million in charity care. Each day we cared for on average 1,131 hospice patients, and staff traveled 2 million miles to meet their needs. There is no limit to the support and comfort we are willing to give.
