“No one should have to deal with grief alone”
When someone dies, everyone in the family is affected. Hospice Savannah’s care extends beyond the treatment of physical symptoms to consider the emotional and social needs of patients and families.
Grief is a direct result of love. When someone we love dies, we feel many different things. Some of us feel sad, some of us feel numb. Many people feel guilt or anger. Grief is different for each person.

Through Full Circle, a Center for Education and Grief Support, we provide a team of qualified and experienced bereavement staff to deal with the emotional and psychological consequences of a loss. Not only do we offer a range of bereavement support for anyone whose relative or friend was cared for by Hospice Savannah, but we also support any adult, teen or child in our coverage area who is having difficulty dealing with loss.
Our services are funded through generous donations from the community and are delivered free of charge.
Support is just a phone call away.

Odyssey Hospice serves the patient and family
At Odyssey Hospice, we improve the quality of life for patients facing terminal diagnoses while providing support for their loved ones.
We’ve been meeting this special need since 1996. Odyssey is one of the largest hospice providers in the country, offering personalized care and support to thousands of patients and their families across the country each day.
Our teams of caregivers consist of registered nurses, physicians, home healthcare aides, social workers, chaplains, bereavement counselors and trained volunteers. They provide palliative care to ease pain and discomforting symptoms. In addition, they provide psycho-social and spiritual support for both patients and their loved ones. Patients typically receive our services in their own homes, in nursing homes, or assisted living facilities. We also serve patients in hospitals and, in certain geographic locations, in Odyssey’s own freestanding hospice facilities.
The commitment and spirit of Odyssey team members who provide care and support 24 hours a day/seven days a week is embodied in a simple phrase team members wear on their collars: “YCCOM: You Can Count on Me.” Visit the Our Services web page for more information.
Hospice Care is about living
Hospice is a compassionate, patient-centered approach to enhance the quality of life and support for people at the end of life and their families. Hospice care is focused on maintaining dignity, increasing quality of life, and providing comfort, including pain and symptom management. Hospice care is for patients with a variety of diagnoses, including heart disease, stroke, liver disease, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer.
