Hospice of Chesterfield County was founded by a group of concerned citizens and area churches and began admitting patients in 1993. Since that time the non-profit agency has provided care for over 2,400 area patients and families. Hospice of Chesterfield County is the only completely locally-based hospice and provides care in Chesterfield and all surrounding counties.

Hospice is a program of care and supportive services designed to help terminally ill persons live as comfortably and as fully as possible during the last stage of their life. The hospice organization focuses on the maximum comfort and care of the terminally ill and provides support through an interdisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, social workers, clergy and volunteers. Hospice believes that caring for the terminally ill can be done at home or in a designated place of residence with the family as the primary caregivers.
