In May, 2007, At Peace Hospice Care opened its doors committed to the philosophy of getting back to the basics of hospice. The owners desired a hospice organization with a strong vision for quality care, as well as the ability to step away from "big business healthcare" and get back to the origins of one-to-one hospice care. After bearing the extensive processes of starting a Medicare-certified hospice company, we received our business license on May 21, 2007 and our Georgia State Hospice license on October 4, 2007. Our Medicare certification was completed on January 23, 2008.
The At Peace approach to hospice is that every patient should be treated as you would expect your own family to be treated. Because we do this on a daily basis, patients receive expert, quality care with a very passionate and personal touch.
Our care team consists of nurses, certified nursing assistants, a social worker, a chaplain and a medical director, all with long term ties to Northwest Georgia. These caregivers have a vested interest in the community and the people they serve. They bring years of hospice experience and local knowledge to an area deep in traditions and customs. Our hand-picked care team provides your family with quality, compassionate physical, emotional and spiritual end-of-life care and services to your loved ones diagnosed with a life-limiting illness.
At Peace Hospice Care provides care to persons living within the following Northwest Georgia counties:

To partner with families in our community as they search for peace in the final chapters of their lives. We take into account the spiritual, emotional, physical and financial needs of our patients and their families. We realize that the entire family is affected and that family is different for everyone. Family is, those who have a common bond, who share wonderful memories and traditions, and who are there to support you even when things get hard. We want to be there for your family. We all come to the end of our lives by different roads, but we all must walk one road home. We want to walk that road home with you and at the end of that road, we hope you and your family are…At Peace.
