Community-Based and In-Hospital Hospice Care
Holy Cross Hospital provides three options for caring for the terminally ill in our community: in-hospital hospice care at Holy Cross Hospital, a comprehensive community-based program, and in-patient hospice care at Sanctuary at Holy Cross, a full-service nursing and rehabilitation center.
Holy Cross Hospice Community-Based Services emphasizes the importance of maintaining patients in their home environment, whether that is their family home, assisted living facility, a group home or a nursing home. Home hospice care is available for Holy Cross Hospital patients, as well as anyone requiring hospice in the Montgomery County, Prince George's County, and Howard County communities.
Holy Cross Hospice first opened in 1967 and has a long history of service. It is state-licensed, CHAP accredited and was the first Medicare certified hospice in Montgomery County, Md. The Holy Cross Hospice interdisciplinary team works with patients, their families and physicians to create a plan of terminal illness support and end-of-life palliative care tailored to each person’s individual needs, including:
While we emphasize home care there are times when either because of acute pain or symptom management issues or those caring for you at home need respite care, we would recommend a short stay in our Bayles Center for Hospice and Palliative Care located at Sanctuary at Holy Cross. The center provides inpatient hospice care. Our hospice staff is on-call 24/7 at the full-service residential nursing and rehabilitation facility. The team coordinates terminal illness care and makes routine visits to patients in the hospice care unit to be certain their physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs are met.
