Bringing the Best in Hospice Care to Greater Atlanta
You have a choice for hospice care services in the Atlanta area, which means patients and families should ask questions and make sure they choose the hospice that meets their needs. VITAS Healthcare has been caring for Georgia patients near the end of life and their families in 24 counties from Lumpkin to Meriwether. We care for greater Atlanta patients every day, mostly in their homes and also in our inpatient hospice unit and in other convenient locations.
Hospice at Home
When everything is changing, VITAS helps things stay familiar. We help patients stay home and in the Greater Atlanta area whenever possible—whether home is a private residence, an assisted living or long term care facility, or even a hospital room. We coordinate with patients’ personal physicians, so patients keep the doctors they know and trust. No matter where care takes place, we coordinate closely with all caregivers, spiritual advisors, families and friends to ensure the patients’ optimal well-being.
Customized End of Life Care
Hospice care is unique in that no two patients are alike, and certainly that is true in the Greater Atlanta area. VITAS hospice teams serve the needs of Spanish-speaking patients, of African American families and communities, of military veterans—all of whom have cultural requirements that need to be understood and supported by their hospice teams.
VITAS has earned recognition by the We Honor Veterans program; special community liaisons work with our underserved populations to make sure everyone who needs hospice understands that it is their right to receive it.
