Make a Referral

Anyone can request hospice services for hospice care. In fact, some patients refer themselves. We will contact the patient's physician to ensure that hospice care is the best choice. Once it has been decided to consider our care, the patient and family are asked to meet with a Pine Pointe Hospice & Palliative Care staff member to determine what the patient's and family's needs are and explain what services we can provide.

The initial visit can be completed at the patient's home, in the hospital, assisted living facility, long-term care facility, or wherever the patient and family feel it is most convenient. On admission, the patient and family are asked to sign various forms to enter into the program. These forms are required by government or accrediting organizations, and will be explained to you. The Pine Pointe Hospice & Palliative Care team develops a plan of care that meets each patient's individual needs.

Referrals can be made by fax. Please print and fax a completed referral page to 478-633-6247. To speak with someone, please call 1-877-671-4997. Any member of our staff will be ready for your call. Please note, these referrals will not be reviewed for 24 to 48 hours after submission to Pine Pointe Hospice & Palliative Care.
