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.

Stop That Itch! Treating Eczema and Poison Ivy

It’s the itch you can’t stop scratching. With eczema or poison ivy, an itchy rash can start suddenly and last for weeks. The rash you get from eczema or poison ivy can look similar, happen pretty much any time of the year and be treated with similar medications or therapies.
