Nurses

Nurse Case managers guide the patient and their caregiver to develop a customized plan of care that meets the goals and wishes of the patient and their family.
Our Registered Nurses carry out your individualized plan of care.  This includes coordinating services, assessing patient health, administering medications, and evaluating any changes in the patient’s response to the plan of care.

Our Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA’s) offer routine, personal care for our patients.  Care is provided wherever the patient calls home.   These services include daily living activities, such as personal care, fixing meals, and even light housekeeping duties.

Social Workers

Social Workers provide emotional support to the patient, caregiver and family throughout a patient’s end of life care.  At Hospice of the Golden Isles, we have three full-time social workers with years of hands-on patient experience, and our Executive Director is also a LCSW. 

The social worker’s role is to counsel patients with any unresolved issues so that a patient may experience peace and serenity throughout their journey.  They also may assist patients and families with grief issues, end-of-life planning, and access to community resources.

Hospice social workers are trained to help patients and families connect with a variety of resources to assist them with matters directly or indirectly related to end-of-life care.  HGI social workers may be able to provide you assistance with:

• Advance directives/ living wills
• Healthcare Power of Attorney
• Healthcare benefits (Veteran’s Administration, etc.)
• Adequate housing for a patient or loved one – i.e. a skilled nursing facility
• Applying for a variety of financial resources to help families in need
• Funeral arrangements

Chaplains

Our chaplains meet the spiritual needs of our patients and their families.  Ecumenical chaplains provide counseling, spiritual support, and referrals to community and financial resources.

We warmly welcome your pastor, rabbi, priest or other clergy to participate in your care.  If you like, we can provide you with an ecumenical chaplain, professionally trained in hospice care, to provide spiritual support and guidance.
