Hospice Care

Our hospice care team provides medical, emotional and spiritual support for people who are nearing life’s end. 

The philosophy of hospice care is to care for the whole person — helping individuals remain at home, alert and comfortable in an atmosphere of kindness, compassion and dignity. Our caregivers also provide bereavement counseling and respite to family members as they come to terms with a loved one’s passing. 

Compassionate end-of-life care

 Our neighbors in the final phase of a chronic illness deserve to live with comfort and dignity, surrounded by the people and things they love.

We offer in-home hospice care to our neighbors in Carroll, Coweta, Douglas, Haralson, Heard and Paulding counties, helping people manage their symptoms to make their last days comfortable.

Support for loved ones

Our mission doesn't stop with the patients in our care — helping their loved ones heal is part of our mission, too.

We offer respite care, bringing the patient into the hospital to receive nursing care and give families a brief rest. And our dedicated group of volunteers helps provide companionship and support.

After the loss of a loved one, we provide phone calls, visits, counseling, cards, grief support groups and community memorial services.

Care for every member of our community

Everyone is entitled to live their last days in peace and dignity. We offer in-home hospice services to every member of our community, regardless of ability to pay. We rely on donations, community support and reimbursement from Medicare and private insurance plans to support our mission.

Trusted, accredited care around-the-clock

Tanner Hospice Care is certified by Medicare and Medicaid, and is fully accredited by The Joint Commission. Our team of nurses and social works is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We also address the spiritual and practical needs of the families in our care with chaplain services, in-hospital respite care, grief support and volunteers from the community who help provide companionship to patients or even help with transportation and household tasks.

Tanner Hospice Care is a covered benefit under most private insurance plans. In addition, hospice is a covered Medicare and Medicaid benefit in Georgia. Private donations and community support also allow hospice to offer services based upon need, rather than the ability to pay.

Braces and Splints for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Braces and Splints for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

From intricate art creations to work-related tasks to those everyday repetitive motions of scrolling through your phone — our hands do more delicate work than we realize. While most of these activities seem relatively safe, they can actually lead to the development of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS).

Acting as a caregiver for a family member can be a rewarding experience, allowing you to spend time and care for someone you love. Caregiving covers a range of situations from those who just need a little extra help caring for themselves to those who are undergoing things such as surgery recovery, cancer treatment and terminal illness. No matter what your role is, one important factor that is often overlooked is who takes care of the caregiver.
