The Mission of SouthernCare, Inc. is to assure that residents of its service locales have access to a program of care that enhances the quality of life for the terminally ill and their families. Care for the whole person is emphasized by providing physical, spiritual and emotional support to all medically appropriate persons without discrimination. Efforts are centered on meeting needs by offering highly individualized compassionate care in the person's home or a home-like setting. SouthernCare, Inc. recognizes the value of dedicated staff and volunteers, and affirms each as individuals, as well as members of the Care Team. SouthernCare, Inc. is dedicated to enhancing the care of all in the community by education, and by example, serve as a symbolic reminder that life is to be lived until you die.
We see each individual as more than a patient. Our skilled professionals and volunteers design an all-encompassing program, customized to each patient that addresses not only the physical needs but also the emotional and spiritual needs of the patient and family. Counseling and education about disease management and the dying process are provided to the family unit in conjunction with patient care.
Our hospice philosophy includes an individualized course of treatment based on the patient’s wishes, the family’s needs and the complex array of medical, emotional and social issues which accompany a terminal diagnosis. Our service offerings include access to a network of community resources specifically arranged to provide comfort, reduce anxiety and allow quality time to be spent with the loved one
