Plan Your Care
Heavenly Hands Hospice believes your goals for comfort, quality of life and assistance should guide your care plan. Allowing hospice to join your care team means that your care is designed according to your individual and family goals. In saying that, having the right resources is key to making a decision. We advocate that you have the tools to make the right decisions for you and your family. Here are some steps that may help to empower you to plan for your or your loved ones care:
- STEP 1: TALK WITH YOUR FAMILY ABOUT YOUR OPTIONS
- Discussing your care options with your loved-ones is an important step in reaching the goals of care. Learn more about how to have these critical conversations by visiting www.CaringInfo.org.
- STEP 2: COMPLETE YOUR ADVANCE HEALTHCARE DIRECTIVE
- Your wishes for your care should be protected. Learn more about completing a Georgia Advance Directive.
- STEP 3: ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT HOSPICE
- Whether you are learning more about hospice for now or in the future, it’s important to ask questions. Visit our Hospice Q&A page to help answer your questions about hospice care.
- STEP 4: TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR MEDICAL CARE
Your goals for comfort, everyday support and self-determination and not the disease is our priority. Call Heavenly Hands Hospice at 770-485-9186 to discuss how we can help you take charge of the care of you or your loved one.
