To provide a voice for patients and families who are dealing with end-of-life care. To provide education and act as a resource to our aging communities.
Facts: Since 1990, the number of patients in hospice care has grown eight-fold while the organizations that provide hospice services have only tripled. Georgia’s 60+ population is expected to increase 65.8% between 2010 and 2030, from 1.5 million people to 2.5 million people. Our network of care providers have an increasing burden which jeopardizes the quality of care provided.
Careus was founded on the principle that all patients and families should have a voice at the point they are receiving end-of-life care. Furthermore, we believe that it is our responsibility to provide our aging population the resources and education they need to make informed decisions before they are in need of end-of-life care.
To make a positive difference at the end of life for all men and women would mean the mission of Careus is being accomplished.
