November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month - Help Others Live Life to The Fullest
Hospice Atlanta is metro Atlanta’s nonprofit safety-net hospice provider, offering comfort and dignity to our community’s most vulnerable population during the final stage of life. Your donation enables us to provide person-centered, compassionate care that helps pediatric and adult patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families live as fully as possible during this difficult time.
Bringing Healthcare Home
We provide physical, emotional and spiritual hospice care for most hospice patients in their home, where they prefer to be. When the needs of the patient can be better met in an inpatient hospice setting, care can be provided in the beautiful Andrew and Eula Carlos Hospice Atlanta Center conveniently located in Brookhaven, GA.
Testimonials from Family and Friends
Although it has been almost two months since my mother’s death, I felt the need to express my heartfelt thanks and admiration for your mission, your organization and, especially, your personnel.
Our attitude about hospice changed too. Originally we saw it as a way to ease the transition to her death, but it became all about helping her live and thrive.
– Jerry, father of pediatric patient
My grandmother was put on hospice 5 days ago. The teams that we have met have been excellent. This is an excellent company and I would recommend them to everyone who needs home hospice care!
