The Andrew and Eula Carlos Hospice Atlanta Center—which opened in Brookhaven in 1996 as Georgia’s first inpatient hospice unit—offers a warm, home-like campus and compassionate, professional care for:
Acute Symptom Management
It’s open and comfortable, with a seasoned staff who can provide high-quality medical care. Stays are short-term and sometimes transitional, meant for controlling symptoms or discomfort until your loved one can return home or be cared for in another setting.
Friends and family are always welcome at the Center, any time, any day. Even pets can visit. It’s bright and relaxed, with 36 rooms, most opening to patios which over look soothing fountains and colorful gardens. The Center also has a family-sized kitchen, as well as an on-site chef, a children’s playroom, a library, a chapel and several living rooms where family members can gather and talk.
