What is Hospice Care?

Hospice is specialized care designed to support individuals and their loved ones during a life-limiting illness. The focus of care is on comfort and quality of life, rather than cure. Hospice care addresses the medical, physical, emotional, spiritual, and social needs of each patient while also being there to support their loved ones. The goal is to effectively manage a patient’s pain and symptoms

When is Hospice Care appropriate?

To be eligible for hospice care, the patient’s doctor must certify that he or she has a terminal illness. These individuals choose palliative care that focuses on symptom management rather than curative treatment, as well as choose no extreme measures to sustain life. A registered nurse will perform an evaluation to assess the patient for eligibility criteria. Hospice-appropriate individuals may exhibit some or all of the following:

  • Frequent hospitalizations or ER visits
  • Progressive weight loss
  • Deteriorating mental capacity
  • Recurrent infections
  • Overall decline in condition

Our Patients Testimonials

Dear Arcturus staff, Thank you so much for the care, concern, and love you provided to my mother (Linnie Thomas) and to her family during the last months of her life at Sandy Springs place! Words cannot express the appreciation we have for Mary Hunt. We are so blessed by all the long hours and special care she provided to mother and for her efforts to enable us to communicate with mother during with strange times of no visitation. Mary truly fulfills her calling as a caring nurse.

Having Hospice there to help us was truly a blessing and made a very difficult situation more manageable. The Arcturus Hospice people were compassionate and helpful. We could not have hoped for more and we are eternally grateful for their assistance in our hours of greatest need.

MDiv, Brite Divinity School

I cannot give Arcturus the praises they deserve. I am grateful for all healthcare workers and employees for the excellent care they gave to Ms. Thelma at The Holly House and The House of Emanuel. They supplied all the medical products she needed. When contacting them via telephone and email they were available to attend to the issues at hand. We were never turned down for anything that Ms. Thelma needed. They were kind, gentle and concerned for her and the family. I will always remember Arcturus for the wonderful services they provide.

Thank you all so much for your help today. Mrs. Tomana passed peacefully with her son present at her bedside. You all are so very good to us! And YoYo was an angel. I know it took a lot of work for a short time on services, but you ALL made it look easy. Thank you again and please know how much we appreciate you ALL.

Tomana Family!
