Caring for a Loved One?
We Know How Overwhelming That Can Be and Want to Help.

Life is full of change. And no change is more profound than being the primary caregiver of someone you love with a serious illness. Not only is there sadness and worry about your loved one’s health but also physical, emotional, and spiritual stress as you take on brand-new roles and responsibilities. Hospice of the Piedmont can help.

We give you peace of mind. The oldest and most experienced hospice in the region, and the only local, community-based provider, we lighten the burden for terminally ill patients and loved ones on the end-of-life journey by celebrating quality—not quantity—of life. We provide expert, compassionate pain care and symptom management for terminally ill patients, training and support for caregivers like you, and a safe and uplifting place for everyone on the end-of-life journey to grieve in our long-term, ongoing bereavement support programs.

Dedicated to getting terminally ill patients who need us into our care as soon as possible, we can provide your loved one with hospice support wherever they are. Click here to refer your lovecd one online. Most hospice patients enjoy our expert, gentle care at home. When the need is too great to be met at home, qualified patients can go to our beautiful Hospice House and our Center for Acute Hospice Care, a state-of-the-art, 10-bed unit at the Northridge Medical Park on Ivy Road.

It’s scary when you don’t know what you don’t know. We know...and want to help:

  • Our expert nurses effectively manage your loved one’s pain and other symptoms and can teach you how to be a better caregiver.
  • Our compassionate nursing support team is available to assist you 24 hours a day to respond to questions or emergencies.
  • Our gentle home health aides can assist the patient with bathing, dressing, changing bed linens, and other activities of daily living.
  • Our loving, well-trained volunteers provide companionship for your loved one, giving you much-needed breaks to rest or run errands. They are even willing to handle errands, provide transportation, and do light chores to help you out.
  • Our wonderful chaplains offer spiritual counseling and sustenance to your family, as requested, or will connect you with other spiritual resources.
  • Our experienced social workers can oversee your entire support system and recommend invaluable resources.

Best of all, the hospice, caregiver, and long-term grief services you receive from us are provided at no cost. Click here to learn more about our Mission, Vision, and promise to our patients and families.
