When a person is facing a serious life-limiting illness, honoring their needs, wishes, and beliefs – and those of their loved ones – is what matters most

We are the stewards of that sacred trust.

WHAT IS HOSPICE

Hospice is a part of the health care continuum that focuses on improving the quality of life of patients approaching the end of life.

  • It allows them to live life to the fullest by providing skilled comfort care and symptom management.
  • It offers caregivers and family members the physical, emotional, and spiritual support necessary to continue providing the best possible care for their loved ones.

WHO ARE WE

At Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice, we tailor our care to every patient and their family’s needs, making sure that skill, compassion, and cultural competence are the foundations of the care we offer to those living with an advancing life-limiting illness in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties. We are an independent nonprofit hospice organization that has been serving residents of Montgomery County since 1981. In 2019, Montgomery Hospice expanded its care to include Prince George’s County. Our inpatient acute-care facility, Casey House, is where our medical staff provide short-term care for patients with symptoms that require intensive medical attention.
