What We Offer

Hospice is a service that steps in to help when you are faced with a life-limiting illness. The focus of hospice isn’t to cure an illness, but to relieve the symptoms so you can live in peace and comfort.

You will continue to receive the medical care you need. But the focus will be on extending and improving your quality of life.  

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.

Tanner Hospice offers in-home hospice care to our neighbors in Carroll, Coweta, Douglas, Haralson, Heard and Paulding counties, helping people live alert and pain-free while managing symptoms to make their last days comfortable. 

Support for loved ones

 Our mission doesn’t stop with the patient in our care — helping his or her loved ones heal is part of our mission, too. 

We offer respite care, bringing the patient into the hospital to receive nursing care and giving 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 workers 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
