This section contains information for caregivers on how to care for the patient, caring for the caregiver, and hospice payment coverage. There are resources available to help you learn more about advance care planning and the related forms. We also develop and share multi-cultural resources on hospice topics with experts in the field, to better understand and support patients, families, and caregivers coming from different backgrounds of knowledge and comfort.
Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice provides our patients and families with a copy of our ‘Hospice Care for our Patients and their Caregivers’ Handbook, as well as several other resources and training videos. Our hospice care team reviews the information contained in this handbook and use it as a training tool to assist caregivers with learning about hospice and how to care for their patient – including nutrition, medication, and safety.
Below, you can preview 10 key topics useful to hospice caregivers and families, when tending to a loved one’s care. These are summarized from the full library of 10 videos–Hospice Training for Caregivers & Families–in 10 minutes.
