What is Hospice Care?

Agape Hospice in GA is dedicated to ensuring the patient’s last few months, weeks, or days are lived in comfort and dignity.

Hospice care is a special kind of care that focuses on the quality of life for people and their caregivers who are experiencing advanced, life-limiting illnesses. Hospice care provides compassionate care for people in the last phases of incurable disease so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.

Hospice at home services include:

  • Time and services of the care team, including visits to the patient’s location by the hospice physician, nurse, medical social worker, home health aide, and chaplain/spiritual adviser
  • Medication for symptom control or pain relief
  • Medical equipment like wheelchairs or walkers and medical supplies like bandages and catheters
  • Physical and occupational therapy
  • Speech-language pathology services
  • Dietary counseling
  • Any other Medicare-covered services needed to manage pain and other symptoms related to the terminal illness, as recommended by the hospice team.
  • Short-term inpatient care (e.g., when adequate pain and symptom management cannot be achieved in the home setting)
  • Short-term respite care (e.g., temporary relief from caregiving to avoid or address “caregiver burnout”)
  • Grief and loss counseling for the patient and loved ones
