What is Hospice?

How To Begin Care
It usually begins with a recommendation from your physician. From that point we will guide you the rest of the journey.
Your Cornerstone team has been continually monitoring developments from the CDC, the White House, the NIH and state health departments in Florida and Georgia regarding the COVID-19 virus and other infectious diseases. Our staff and volunteers are taking every precaution and following every protocol to ensure the safety of our patients and their family members.
All visitors to our Inpatient Care Centers and Hospice Houses are being screened to make sure they are not high-risk from any exposure to an active virus and have not experienced any symptoms.
Visitors are asked to wash your hands, do not touch your face and bring hand sanitizer with you for the visit. We are all working together to limit any spread. If for any reason you think you may have been exposed or have any of the listed symptoms, please stay home and follow your doctor's orders.
- Sore throat
- Body aches or chills
Visitors to Cornerstone Hospice patients in nursing homes or other contracted facilities must follow the visitation rules of that particular facility / hospital.
Should you have questions or concerns it is best to follow the COVID-19 information and recommendations of the Department of Health in your particular state or follow the daily updates provided by the CDC:
