Services are provided by a skilled interdisciplinary team to assist patients and families through the difficult journey of a terminal illness. These services are provided by Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice to all patients, including the uninsured and under-insured.
THE MONTGOMERY HOSPICE AND PRINCE GEORGE’S HOSPICE TEAM
Care is provided by a team of people that includes doctors, nurses, social workers, spiritual counselors, hospice aides and trained volunteers.
When a patient first enters hospice, members of the Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice Team visit the patient and family to learn their needs. They make regular follow-up visits based on the care plan that the patient, family and hospice team establish together.
SERVICES FOR HOSPICE CARE
These services are made available to our patients through a range of programs, including:
Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance do not pay for a hospice nurse to be in a patient’s home all the time. We can put you in touch with other organizations that may be able to provide you with additional nursing support.
