Why Choose Thomaston Hospice?

Why choose Thomaston Hospice?
… We’re glad you asked!

We offer In Home Care, Nursing Facilities and 24 Hour Nurse Coverage.

  • Medicare is a constantly changing healthcare system. Many hospices are expanding their service areas to increase their quantity of patients in order to adapt to these changes. However, at Thomaston Hospice we have our service area cut in half in order to better provide the quality of care “small town” communities and patients deserve. People who live in small towns such as Thomaston, Barnesville, Manchester and Zebulon become accustomed to certain conveniences that a small town provides.
  • Thomaston Hospice nurses live locally and are able to respond to a call much quicker. Federal hospice regulations state that “providers must be able to reach their patients within an hour”. However, just because a “non-local” hospice is an hour or less away doesn’t mean the nurse on-call lives within an hour.
  • In an emergency situation, time is of the essence. Theoffice is open Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm. Non-office hours make up 73% of a week, meaning there is a high probability that you will need help from an on-call nurse at some point during your time of care. Nursess at Thomaston Hospice are available to talk or visit 24/7. When you need a nurse, you talk to a nurse, not an answering service.
  • Thomaston Hospice uses local pharmacies so that we can deliver medications to the patient much quicker than a national pharmacy. Symptom and comfort control medication delivery is available 24/7.
  • Thomaston Hospice realizes that many people see specialists and doctors out of town. Many of these physicians are familiar with their “local hospices” more so than your “local hospice”.

If your doctor discusses hospice care with you and suggests referring you, please ask for “Thomaston Hospice”!
