Palliative Care and Hospice
Blount Senior Care Partners offers physicians and nurse practitioners with specialized certification and experience in Palliative Care and Hospice. We recognize that geriatric care requires a focus on the health needs not only of our most active elders, but also on the needs of our most fragile, including those who are nearing the end of life. Our providers are available to discuss issues of advanced care planning, advanced directives, and the role of hospice or palliative care as an acceptable part of active medical management. We are happy to assist with determining eligibility for hospice services and assist with the referral process. Dr. Catron serves as the Medical Director of Blount Memorial Hospice and Pallitive Care Program.
