Support Hospice Care

As west Georgia’s only community-based, nonprofit hospice provider, we work to extend our mission to every person in our community — regardless of ability to pay. To do that, we rely on community support, donations, fundraisers and more.

Volunteering with Tanner Hospice Care: We need you!

Our volunteers are what make Tanner Hospice Care truly special. Sometimes, what a patient in hospice care or his or her loved ones need isn’t a nurse or clinician — it’s companionship, someone to tidy up the kitchen or a ride to the grocery store.

We need volunteers to:

  • Call on patients at their home for companionship
  • Sit with patients to allow respite to caregivers
  • Assist with light household duties
  • Help with running errands

Hospice volunteers are a unique group of people who understand — often intimately — the important work that hospice does to help people live with dignity and compassion. Many of our volunteers have been touched by our services through their own loss of a loved one. 

We understand that hospice work isn’t for everyone, but for many, sharing your time and talents through Tanner Hospice Care is a meaningful way to give back to the community, support your neighbors and help patients and their loved ones alike.

Diagnosis and prognosis are similar terms, but they have different meanings, and understanding the difference is crucial in navigating the medical landscape.

Helping Loved Ones Resistant to Hospice Care
Helping Loved Ones Resistant to Hospice Care

Having a loved one nearing the end of life can be a difficult time for both the patient and their family members. Oftentimes, hospice care is recommended as a way to provide comfort and support during this difficult transition. However, some loved ones may be resistant to hospice care and may not understand the benefits it can provide. By understanding their fears and concerns, answering their questions and more, families can help their loved ones receive the care they need.
