Hospice is a philosophy of care that emphasizes living to the fullest even while an individual is experiencing a life-threatening illness. Hospice care focuses on quality of life by providing physical, emotional and spiritual comfort to people in the last stages of life.
DeKalb Health’s Hospice Services use a holistic approach in addressing the many concerns of all involved with caring for a loved one at home. Our team of professionals includes physicians, registered nurses, social workers and clergy as well as specialized therapists, home health aides and specially trained volunteers.
Hospice visiting nurses help families learn how to manage their loved one's pain and symptoms. Our nurses are on call 24 hours a day to provide care and support to the patient and family members.
All of our hospice care is under professional medical supervision. The patient and family are included in the care plan, and emotional, spiritual and practical support is given based on the patient's wishes and the family's needs. Trained volunteers can offer respite care for family members as well as meaningful support to the patient.
