Why Montgomery Hospice

Finding a quality hospice program - questions to ask

Does the hospice have:

  • a team of skilled professionals who can provide medical, spiritual, psychosocial, and bereavement care?
  • hospice-trained volunteers to provide companionship and other help?
  • access to clinicians 24 hours a day, 7 days a week?
  • the ability to provide care to patients who reside in their own homes, nursing homes or assisted living facilities?
  • a dedicated acute-care inpatient hospice facility?
  • a medical director who is a physician skilled in hospice and palliative care?
  • close collaboration with patients’ own community physicians?
  • the ability to provide care to non-English speaking patients and families?
  • professional grief counselors who provide emotional support and community education?
  • licensed and specially-trained medical staff with certification in hospice and palliative care?
  • accreditation by The Joint Commission and certification by Medicare?

For Montgomery Hospice, the answers to all of these questions is YES.
