At Montgomery Hospice’s standalone acute care inpatient facility, Casey House, we manage patients’ symptoms, allowing families to spend time together, to share and create memories. More than 8,100 patients have been cared for at Casey House since it opened in 1999. In 2016 alone, we took care of 483 patients—and their families—in this comforting facility

"Grandpa was the center of our family. We used to join together at his home to talk, to reminisce, to enjoy each other, to learn from him the vast history that he carried. When we, his family, met together at Casey House, we tried to recreate those visits. We sat and ate dinner in your dining room as we used to do at his old house. We told stories in his room. We tried to make ourselves at home while we ached with loss for what our new lives would be without him. Everyone at Casey House was so kind and so patient with us. I can’t imagine having to go through that time without the wisdom and kindness of your staff. I am so grateful that you were there in our moment of need. From the bottom of my heart, thank you."

People who visit Casey House describe it as a sanctuary. Many appreciate the beautiful setting—the surrounding fields, the birds, the fountain, the patio. Others cite the home-like feeling inside the building with the large table used by families to share meals, comfortable sitting areas for visiting with friends, and the meditation room providing a space for quiet thought. The characteristic of Casey House most often mentioned as exceptional is the staff of people who work there. Professionalism and expertise, combined with caring and compassion, make the Casey House staff an extraordinary group. They provide round-the-clock comfort and dignity to seriously ill patients. Having a medical facility specifically designed to care for the sickest members of our county is expensive. Donations allow the needs of residents of Montgomery County who have life-limiting illnesses to be met with expert care.
