Once a referral is received...a hospice nurse will meet the patient within 24-hours for an assessment to determine hospice eligibility. Upon hospice admission, the patient is provided a multitude of resources and support with immediate communication for care planning and scheduling. The Attending Physician remains as the patient’s primary physician and will work with the Homestead team to review care plans and discuss conditions and prognosis. As the Attending Physician, you are in a unique position to provide end-of-life care, which includes recognizing the need for and recommending hospice care when appropriate.

“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 same day. He was put on Continuous Care, the Homestead team never left. He passed away the next day peaceful 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 to get him home on high flow O2. My family and I will always be grateful for the love and care shown to my Dad and family during this time. I know that we wouldn't have been able to go through this without the Warner Robins, Homestead team.“The Collins Family
