When Should Hospice Patients Consider Hospice Atlanta Center?
When, as determined by a hospice physician, the needs of your loved one can be better met in an inpatient setting, the Hospice Atlanta Center in Atlanta, GA, may be appropriate. These stays are short-term and sometimes transitional to control symptoms until your loved one can return home or be comfortably cared for in another setting.
Medicare and most insurance plans pay for inpatient stays when it’s medically necessary. If your loved one chooses to receive hospice care in Hospice Atlanta Center when there is no longer an acute medical need, the cost of room and board becomes the responsibility of the patient and family. Our staff can provide information to help you with these decisions. To learn more about Medicare’s Hospice coverage, see Medicare Hospice Benefits.

Volunteers play an important role in home hospice services and at Hospice Atlanta Center, and there are many volunteer opportunities. Consider volunteering your time and talents.
