Compassionate, Experienced Professionals Guiding You & Your Family Through Life's Changes

For over twenty years, Ogeechee Area Hospice has been serving individuals with life-limiting illness and their families in Bulloch, Evans, Candler, Jenkins, Screven, Tattnall and in the nearest parts of Emanuel, Bryan and Effingham counties.

Why Hospice?

You have always made your own life choices, but now you are living with a difficult illness.

Perhaps you are the primary caregiver for someone who is at the end-stages of an illness, and you need someone to turn to for help.

While times like these can be frightening, leaving you feeling vulnerable and indecisive, they do not have to be so challenging. Dignity, peace, and family togetherness can replace discomfort and fear when one is faced with critical decisions.

Everyone has the right to compassionate care, expert symptom control, and pain management over the last months, weeks and days of his or her life.

At Ogeechee Area Hospice, you and your loved-one will receive the best comprehensive care from our highly-qualified interdisciplinary team of hospice professionals.
