Making hospice a personal experience
for life's most important journey
An individualized, patient-focused care plan devised by your hospice interdisciplinary team will provide the support and guidance necessary to address your specific needs. Services include delivery of equipment and supplies in addition to physical, emotional and psychosocial care. Hospice provides around the clock care, so you know that help is just a phone call away. It is important to know that you’re not alone during this difficult time, reaching out for hospice care may be the best decision you can make for your entire family.
Deciding when to call for hospice services can be confusing. It’s a big decision, but the hospice provider you want for your loved one is your choice. Referring a loved one for hospice is a decision that can provide peace of mind, comfort and quality of life.
Hospice is not just for the last few days of life. A patient can be on hospice up to six months with a terminal illness diagnosis. Hospice manages pain and symptoms so a patient can live well.

“When I was taking care of my parents while raising 2 young children, I was lucky to have been introduced to Homestead Hospice. They helped me take care of my parents during this difficult time.”
“My dad was in ICU with Leukemia. His wish was to pass away at home and not in the hospital. After three long weeks of being in ICU, he was not improving so he was referred to hospice. Homestead Hospice, Warner Robins received the referral and he was home the same day. He was put on Continuous Care and the Homestead team never left. He passed away the next day peacefully, at home, surrounded by his family. I know this would not have happened without Shay Massey, the Administrator at the Warner Robins office, working so hard.”
