Our Patients

Patients Who Choose Family First Hospice Care

Our diverse patients and families struggle with serious, life-limiting illness or end of life. Our Georgia hospice and palliative care patients live in Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Dawson, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, Lumpkin, Newton, Paulding, Pickens, Rockdale, and Walton counties.

Family First Hospice Care services are the right choice for patients and families who need extra support at home. Here, a top team of practitioners provides that support and care.

Our patients receive services in any location that they call “home.” This includes places of residence, assisted living settings, personal care homes, and skilled nursing centers.

You, a family member, or friend can request care from Family First at any time:

A real person answers your calls, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, and on holidays.

We work with your primary care physician to obtain an order of care – so you don’t have to.

Our registered nurse performs a simple eligibility assessment, with no out of pocket expense.

Our services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most commercial insurances.

Your designated nurse starts the assessment process. First, they establish eligibility so you can get benefits. Then, they work with you on your care goals.

What Kind of Care Can I Expect from Family First?

As our patient, we provide you with the highest level of comfort and care.

We manage your care across settings. Here’s how it works. Each patient creates a plan for care. For example, you want to reduce pain and symptoms. We help with that. Your better quality of life means fewer hospital stays or treatments. Thus, your care meets your goals.

When you need a higher level of care, we help you remove any stopgaps. Of course, your access to care is our first concern. You shouldn’t worry about getting the care you deserve. The team approach makes it easier for you and your loved ones. We work together to provide the best:

  • Comfort care
  • Pain relief and wound care
  • Mental health care
  • Spiritual care
  • Respite care
  • Grief and loss support
  • Holistic methods
  • Multi-lingual support
  • And more

In all cases, Family First honors your goals and wishes. We work to meet the expectations of patients and caregivers. So we keep open lines of communication. Also, our support includes a native (first) language telecommunication line. If needed, an interpreter makes certain your intent is clear.

Finally, the team commits to support your needs, as shown in the Patient Bill of Rights. As always, respect your values, culture, and beliefs.

At Family First Hospice Care, we accept applicants without regard to race, national origin, color, creed or religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, age, disability, or ability to pay.
