ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Board members for Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital met today to discuss the myths of Hospice care.
November is national Hospice month.
Phoebe Hospice has a new facility.
They want to make sure patients are aware that Hospice is not just for elderly patients or patients in the final stage of life.
They focus on a patient's quality of life by offering programs, classes and churches.
"We treat the mind, body and spirit. So not just the physical components of the patient but also the spiritual and emotional components as well," said the Executive Director for Phoebe Hospice, Jennifer Stephens.
Hospice can also take place in a patient's home
