Your Hospice Team
West Georgia Hospice has more than 50 skilled professionals who deliver caring, compassionate care on a daily basis. From administrators to nurses, housekeeping to food service, each of our staff members is uniquely qualified to serve our patients and their loved ones in their time of need.
In addition to the professional staff, there are more than 120 specially trained volunteers who provide clerical and administrative support as well as visits and support to the patients and families in their homes and at Hospice LaGrange.
Our director, Kristie Gilmore, BSW, LNHA, is continuing the dream of West Georgia Hospice started more than 30 years ago. Our medical director consults with your physician to coordinate delivery of personalized hospice care.
Registered nurses (RN), licensed practical nurses (LPN) and certified nursing assistants (CNA) help relieve pain, manage symptoms and provide personal care. Licensed master social workers (LMSW) help connect patients to community resources, offer supportive counseling, encourage storytelling and assist with end of life care planning.
Chaplains assist with spiritual and end of life concerns, and bereavement coordinators oversee group and personal counseling for on-going grief support. Volunteers offer companionship, run errands and provide brief respite when appropriate.
