Seasons Hospice Opens New Hospice Inpatient Center in Georgia

SEASONS HOSPICE & PALLIATIVE CARE OPENS NEW INPATIENT CARE CENTER

New center answers need for an inpatient hospice center in Atlanta area

Atlanta, Georgia (August 24, 2016) – Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care will be celebrating the opening of its new 15-bed inpatient center at 8030 Majors Rd in Cumming. The new inpatient care center is designed to celebrate the traditional southern charm architecture while creating a warm and caring home-like environment for the hospice patients and their families.

Hospice care is typically provided in the comfort of the patient’s home. On occasion, when pain or symptoms cannot be adequately managed in the home setting, the patient may benefit from a short-term stay at the Seasons Hospice Inpatient Center where the focus is on the patient and family and their individual needs.  In a uniquely serene, comfortable, and medically supported environment, patients, surrounded by loved ones, can access the highest level of hospice care to manage their symptoms. Once the pain or symptoms are controlled, the patient can be transitioned to home or to another setting for extended care.  This is the only inpatient center of this kind in the Cumming area that is exclusively providing this level of care.

“The Seasons Hospice Inpatient Center represents our long-awaited ability of our clinical team to provide the gold standard of inpatient hospice care for our patients and their families, offering a homelike environment to support them during their greatest period of need,” said Rita Isnetto, Executive Director of Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care. “Every day we identify patients who would benefit from this unmet need and our ability to offer this to them as part of our extraordinary array of hospice services is a source of great excitement for all of our staff.”

Please join us on Wednesday, August 24th for a community open house from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. with refreshments and hors d’ oeuvres. On Thursday August 25, we will be hosting a VIP open house from 4:00-8:00 p.m. A ribbon cutting will be taking place at 6:00 p.m.
