Being able to have mother come here is a godsend for us. With both of us working, there is no way we could care for her at home and we were not happy with the nursing facilities we looked at before choosing Hospice Atlanta Center.

Visiting Nurse offers a great deal of relief to the family. I would encourage anyone to give deep consideration to donate money to this organization
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.
I have learned the most important part of any medical services is the people providing it, and I have complete and absolute confidence in Visiting Nurse. I wanted no one other than Visiting Nurse delivering my home health care services.
Both my husband and I have witnessed our health care system and the difficulty maneuvering through it as a result of a very long journey being hospitalized. We are so aware of its shortcomings and the uncertainty. But if it is of any consolation we are forever thankful to Visiting Nurse for all the services you provided for us
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.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Visiting Nurse Health System for the wonderful care, compassion and dedication my family has received in help caring for my mother.
Five years ago I was in an impossible situation. With three young children of my own, I was faced with caring for my mother who had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and helping my 82-year-old father transition into this life-changing situation. Just trying to understand what was happening and how I was going to manage this was beyond overwhelming. Dealing with the grief of losing my mom to this disease made it even more stressful.
Fortunately, a very good friend recommended Visiting Nurse’s Long-Term Care at Home program. Visiting Nurse provided insight, knowledge, compassion, and an amazing team who provide my mom with excellent care. Thanks to the team, my parents are still in their home, and are doing well. Quite frankly, I wouldn’t have been able to manage all of this without their help – they all are indeed a blessing, and I am so very grateful.
Thank you again for help making a stressful and life-changing situation manageable for our family.
