BERLIN — Coastal Hospice invites the public to celebrate Giving Tuesday and to show their support of the project with a first look at the new Macky and Pam Stansell House of Coastal Hospice at the Ocean.
Construction of the Stansell House is near completion and is expected to open to patients in early 2019. This state-of-the-art facility located at The Point in Ocean Pines is the first hospice house to serve the Lower Eastern Shore. As a hospice house, the facility will provide quality end-of-life care with the comforts of home. The house will serve the most vulnerable hospice patients who are no longer safe in their own homes.
The open house event will take place 5-8 p.m. on Nov. 27 at the site, 1500 Ocean Parkway in Ocean Pines.
“We are excited to open the doors of the Stansell House to the public for a first look,” said Alane Capen, president of Coastal Hospice. “This beautiful facility has been a long time coming and is so critical for end-of-life care on the Eastern Shore. We could not have completed this project without the generous support of our community, our committee and board members who have worked tirelessly for a decade to see this vision become a reality.”
The Stansell House preview coincides with Giving Tuesday, a global giving event following the widely recognized shopping events after Thanksgiving — Black Friday and Cyber Monday — to kick off the charitable giving season. Giving Tuesday is also in conjunction with Shore Gives More 2018 presented by the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore. Shore Gives More brings together the community to raise money and awareness for local nonprofits during a 24-hour online giving challenge.
