Who Are We?

Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice is part of an independent nonprofit organization serving residents in Maryland since 1981. In 2019, Montgomery Hospice, Inc. expanded its care to include Prince George’s County, forming Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice. Our team of doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, spiritual counselors, social workers, certified nursing assistants, bereavement counselors and volunteers work with our patients and their families to provide quality end-of-life care in homes, nursing and extended care facilities in both Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties. 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.

Our History

What is hospice care?

Hospice care focuses on medical and personal comfort for people living with an illness that is no longer responding to curative treatments. Patients choose hospice when it becomes clear that a cure is no longer likely, and they want comfort care so they can live as fully as possible until the end of life. Hospice care helps patients with physical symptoms like pain or nausea. Hospice staff members also comfort patients, families and friends by helping them feel emotionally and spiritually at peace. They work together with patients and families to bring dignity and well-being to anyone affected by illness and loss.

Why Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice?

Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice works with patients to understand their goals and objectives for this time in their lives. Members of the hospice team focus on what is important to the patient, which helps us customize our care to the needs of our patients and their families. We provide a range of services and care beyond what is standard under hospice regulations.

Considering a referral?

“Mom had been staying in a nursing home. Because of difficulties with her breathing, she was hospitalized.  When the doctor said it was probably time for hospice care for Mom, she suggested Casey House as a way to help manage her symptoms. I talked to the Montgomery Hospice social worker at the hospital who provided information and literature about the excellent care at Montgomery Hospice and Casey House.  Once I made the decision, I immediately felt a sense of calm and support.  The transition to Casey House went very quickly and smoothly.

Bettie

What a relief for Mom to be transported to Casey House! At Casey House, we felt welcomed and at home. We could come and go at any time. We were able to treat the Casey House great room as though it was our own den. My siblings were there a lot and we were able to be together very comfortably as a family. Friends came too. The grandchildren were able to play Nintendo on the Casey House TV. We were able to provide pizza for our kids at the table. That was so reassuring and helpful.
