I am writing to share the important news that Hospice Savannah continues to admit and care for your friends, neighbors and families throughout Bryan, Chatham Effingham, and Liberty counties.
Shelter-In-Place Orders make it difficult for families to be with their loved ones at Hospice House currently, so our clinical staff is caring for General Inpatients (those patients who need round-the-clock attention for serious symptom management) in their own homes or nursing home facilities.
While we are still caring for some patients at Hospice House, we will be in homes wherever possible so that families may spend precious time together. As always, we strive to make the last few months, weeks and days as meaningful and comfortable as we can.
Please join me in keeping our staff in prayer and in your thoughts as they selflessly, compassionately and courageously continue to fulfill our mission during these difficult days. They are true heroes.
