Inpatient Care Center
Why is our Langdale Hospice House essential to hospice care?
The Langdale Hospice House is a wonderful benefit for Hospice of South Georgia patients, and the first of its kind in our region. Nestled in a quiet, pine-filled neighborhood on Pineview Drive in Valdosta, this care center greatly enhances not only a continuum of hospice services, but elevates hospice care to a higher level. While many people receive hospice care in the home, there are situations that call for an alternative setting in a patient’s level of care, attention to personal needs, companionship, meals and security, all of which are provided at the Langdale Hospice House.
