Making More Moments Possible with Hospice
Hospice of South Georgia provides care to any person of any age facing a life-limiting illness, with life-expectancy of 6 months or less. For patients and families seeking care focused on quality of life and comfort, Hospice of South Georgia can be the right choice.
Our Medical Director, Dr. Thomas Hobby, is specifically certified in Palliative and Hospice care, serving over the Palliative Care team at South Georgia Medical Center. Along with Dr. Hobby, our nurses and social workers hold certifications in Hospice and Palliative Care as well. Providing quality end-of-life care to patients and their families is accomplished by a team of professionals including registered nurses, doctors, social workers, a chaplain, certified nursing assistants, a dietician, grief counselors, and trained volunteers.
Hospice care is provided most often in the home, but is also offered in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and at the Langdale Hospice House. The Langdale Hospice House is an inpatient care center available exclusively to patients under the care of Hospice of South Georgia. The sooner we can help, the more patients and their families can benefit!
Hospice care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurances. It is the policy of Hospice of South Georgia not to discriminate on the basis of race, age, color, sex, religion, national origin, physical or mental handicap or ability to pay in the delivery of services or treatment.
Anyone can refer themselves or someone they care about to Hospice of South Georgia. There is no cost and no obligation for an assessment. If other services besides hospice care can better meet the needs of someone, we will help locate and refer to those services.
