Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury, Hospice focuses on caring not curing and hospice involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes. Support is provided to the patient’s loved ones as well. To learn more about Hospice or Palliative Care, please click on the image icons. To find a Hospice Provider please Click here!

Because Palliative Care is not a place, it may be difficult to located a providers of this kind of care in geographic area. We are gathering a directory that lists the name and contact information for palliative care providers throughout the state of Georgia. These providers may be hospitals, outpatient clinics, or cancer centers and they have developed a formal palliative care program based on national standards of palliative care.
