Expert Nursing Care for Patients

The nursing profession has a long history of providing healthcare and advocacy for the patient and their family. That honored tradition works hand in hand with hospice care where the goal is comfort, dignity, and quality of life for the terminally ill. Caring and Nursing are intertwined concepts that encompass how a patient is treated. The focus at Aberdeen Place Hospice is on the patient living with the illness, rather than the illness itself. We consider this an important distinction, and our nursing staff agrees.

Hospice Care

At Aberdeen Place Hospice, our Medical Director provides patient care supervision, and our staff of Georgia-registered nurses provide medical support for:

  • Scheduled home visits
  • Round the clock care when required
  • 24/7 On-call Hospice Care

In addition, we have Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) sharing comfort and personal care services to patients whenever they are needed.

The nursing care at Aberdeen Place Hospice is second-to-none. If you have questions about palliative or end-of-life care for your loved one, please contact us today.

Hospice Care – a Different Perspective

At Aberdeen Place Hospice, we take a different approach to hospice care. Hospice is not a place, but a method of healthcare delivery for those faced with a life-limiting illness. Our hospice care focuses on creating a natural, familiar, and comfortable end-of-life experience for patients with terminal illnesses. At Aberdeen Place Hospice, we treat the patient and provide support for their loved ones – friends and family. We strongly believe that this approach makes a difference to the people under our care.

For more information about hospice nursing care for your loved one contact us today at 678.878.3440. We’ll schedule a visit with you and other concerned members of your family so everyone has the answers they need.

Home Healthcare Supplies & Medication

At Aberdeen Place Hospice, we take a multi-disciplinary approach to providing hospice care through nursing care, medical social work, and counseling services for the patient and family. We also provide in-home hospice care support through medical supplies/medication related to the primary diagnosis, nursing care, and medication delivery so that the family can stay focused on their loved one and the remaining time they have left together.

Hospice Medical Support

Our team of trained nursing staff, counselors, and volunteers offer delivery, setup, and takeaway support for:

  • Prescription medications, medical supplies and equipment (including oxygen)
  • Pain control and medications related to the primary diagnosis
  • Medical transportation services

When you are caring for a terminally ill loved one at home, the last thing you need is the additional burden of running errands, coordinating nursing schedules, or picking up medications.

At Aberdeen Place Hospice, we focus on a whole-family approach to hospice care. If you have questions about end-of-life care options for you or a loved one, please contact us today.

Medical Treatment of Pain and Suffering for the Terminally Ill

Medical treatment of pain and suffering for the terminally ill may involve various approaches depending on the patient. At Aberdeen Place Hospice, we work with the patient and family to provide the highest level of care, including:

  • Management of physical pain and psychological symptoms
  • Maintenance of patient function within limits set by their condition
  • Maintaining the opportunity to resolve life tasks and goals through reconciliation, resolution, and communication in significant relationships
  • Working through the necessity for the patient to yield control to others in whom he or she has confidence

Dealing with each of these stages is referred to as ‘coping’, and both patient and family members may need various levels of support through each stage.

We offer a full range of hospice care for your loved one, including home health care, counseling, and support services for the terminally ill. Call us today at 678.878.3440 to schedule a visit and get the answers you need.

Bereavement Support Services

Often, in a hospice care situation, the focus on the patient can leave close family members adrift. At Aberdeen Place Hospice, we recognize that it is important to treat the patient’s emotional and spiritual needs as well as their family and close relationships with care. This is why we incorporate grief and bereavement support into all our services – through our in-home hospice services.

A Wide Range Of Support:

At Aberdeen Place Hospice our staff and our trained volunteers offer a range of support services to help families:

  • Emotional support
  • Practical, family support
  • Spiritual support
  • Respite support

We undertake psycho-social assessment of the needs of the patient/family, offer intermittent and ongoing counseling related to death and dying, and provide assistance with use of appropriate community services and resources. Spiritual counseling is provided by a clinical chaplain including liaison with patient and/or family clergy and other community-based clergy. The bereavement support at Aberdeen Place Hospice helps individuals and families navigate the grief process with dignity. These services are designed to provide support to the whole patient and their family.

If you have questions about managing a life-limiting illness, please contact us today.

Hospice Counseling Support for Patient and Family

At Aberdeen Place Hospice, we are available to help our patients, their family members, and other close relatives gather and rely on the strength and support they need to cope with the death of someone who is terminally ill. Talking with a counselor today can help you cope with the grieving process while caring for the person who is facing end-of-life decisions.

We recognize that grieving is a deeply personal journey and your experience will be different from that of others – even those closest to you. Your heart and mind have to find their way through the process in their own time.
