Care for the Patient

Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice patients and families can use the following training videos as a reference from the comfort of their homes. In addition, our handbook, ‘Hospice Care for our Patients and their Caregivers’, is available as an interactive hands-on resource. The hospice team uses our handbook to assist caregivers with learning about hospice and how to care for their patient – including topics such as nutrition, medication, and safety. If you have any questions, please contact us at 301-921-4400.
