There’s no place like home when it comes to your comfort while recuperating from an illness or recovering from surgery. When combined with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you will receive the same outstanding care at home, there is no better option than Chesapeake Regional’s in-home service, Comfort Care.
Our skilled nurses, occupational and physical therapists, dietitians, home health aides and social workers can come to your home to provide the personalized, follow-up care you need.
Comfort Care requires a physician’s referral and is covered by most insurance plans.
Medicare patients must be homebound.
Services & Specialties
Skilled Nursing Services
Registered and licensed nurses can provide a full range of care including medication management, catheter changes, tube feedings, ostomy care, handling injections and in-depth education.
This service often allows patients to return home sooner than expected after a hospitalization. Services are available 24 hours a day and include total parenteral and enteral nutrition, IV antibiotics and fluid replacement.

Physical, occupational and speech therapists are specifically trained to handle rehabilitation needs resulting from stroke, head injury, neurological disease, arthritis, orthopedic surgery, bone fractures, amputation, heart attack, lower back and joint pain and general weakness following hospital care.
Palliative Care Services
Palliative care aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for families and patients with chronic illness. Pain and symptom control is provided, as well as emotional support and counseling. Palliative care is provided by an interdisciplinary team to provide comfort, relieve suffering and improve quality of life for patients of any age and any stage of chronic illness, whether that illness is curable, chronic or life-threatening.
Absences from home must be infrequent, for periods of short duration or attributable to the need of medical treatment.
Chronic Disease Management
Chronic diseases can lead to a disruption of independent life. With specialized pathways for CHF, COPD and other chronic conditions, our team can help patients better manage these symptoms in order to retain an acceptable lifestyle through attainable goals.
We provide easy-to-use monitoring equipment to patients who need regular monitoring of their vital signs and symptoms. Patients can check their status from the comfort of their own home while the data is transferred to our team of nurses for assessment and evaluation.
