Philosophy of Hospice Atlanta
Hospice Atlanta is founded on the belief that dying is an integral part of life. Patients and their families are encouraged to experience those precious final moments of living with awareness and personal integrity. Hospice Atlanta provides a coordinated program of supportive care directed toward meeting the physical, social, and psychological and spiritual needs of terminally ill patients and their families. Hospice care is delivered by an inter-disciplinary team of health care professionals and volunteers in conjunction with the patient’s family and attending physician, and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week without regard to ability to pay. It is the belief of this organization that this continuity of care can be provided cost effectively, enhancing the quality of life through death.
