Hospice of Southwest Georgia offers a multitude of support program and events for families and patients.
Camp HEAL is a bereavement day camp that helps children ages 6 to 17 learn to cope with the loss of a loved one by having a safe and fun environment to have their own voice and begin to heal.
The day camp is funded through designated gifts made to the Archbold Foundation, and is free and open to children who have recently experienced a loss. Camp HEAL offers educational discussions on grief and bereavement, an informal memorial service and other activities, such as horseback riding, art, music and more.
Therapy pets can positively influence the social, physical and mental condition of patients. Interaction with these pets may lower blood pressure, rehabilitate and promote relaxation, relieve agitation, anxiety and stress in patients, and even reduce the need for drug therapy in some cases
