We are here for the patient. We are here for you.

As Georgia’s leading nonprofit hospice provider, you can count on Hospice Atlanta to give your entire family physical, emotional and spiritual support when a loved one is facing a life-limiting illness. We do it with grace and dignity for the patient. We do it with understanding and compassion for you.

Hospice Atlanta was established in 1975 as Georgia’s first hospice provider. We have the expertise and resources to guide your family through this very personal time. Our team works as an extension of the patient’s attending physician, offering a combination of “hands-on” tenderness with high tech efficiencies brought bedside when necessary. With Hospice Atlanta by your side, you can have confidence, and as importantly, you can have calm.

We’re here for you, wherever you are.

We bring home the care, most often, to the patient’s actual residence. But our skilled and intuitive team can also provide care in a nursing home, an assisted living facility or any other living situation. Our exceptional team is coordinated by our full-time Medical Director and consists of specially-selected, extraordinarily passionate individuals including:

  • Nurses
  • Nursing assistants
  • Social workers
  • Chaplains
  • Volunteers

And if care is needed in an inpatient setting, your loved one can be housed in the safety and comfort of our state-of-the-art Hospice Atlanta Center.

Care for the whole family.

A lingering illness can take its toll on all involved. That’s why Hospice Atlanta provides not only uncompromising, compassionate care for the patient, but several options of respite care for family members and caregivers. You can arrange for:

  • A caring and dependable volunteer to vacation with your loved one while you run errands or just take a walk.
  • A five-night stay for the patient at our Center to allow caregivers time.
  • Pet Peace of Mind: Our service that helps with four-legged family members.
  • Bereavement Counseling for up to 13 months after a loved one’s passing.

At Hospice Atlanta, we know that even when someone is dying, there’s a lot of living to do. For the patient and for the family, we provide everything possible to make every day one of quality and filled with support, peace and love to create warm final memories between all family members.
