Our Family Taking Care of Yours for More than Three Decades in Metro Atlanta, Athens & Northeast Georgia
The BridgeWay Team consists of dedicated medical professionals who focus on the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual needs of our patients. You can count on the BridgeWay team for professional, family-oriented care and support.
All medical care is overseen by a BridgeWay Hospice Medical Director, an Associate Medical Director or the patient’s attending physician. Our nurses provide pain and symptom management and monitor the patient’s condition on a routine and as-needed basis. Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) help with patient’s personal care needs.
In addition to our dedicated nurses and CNAs, BridgeWay Hospice also works with a variety of other caring individuals to provide patient and family support including social workers, chaplains and volunteers.

Individualized Care Plans

All patient assessments are reviewed and approved by a BridgeWay Hospice Medical Director or Associate Medical Director. These initial assessments will guide all the BridgeWay team members in completing a care plan tailored to the patients specific medical, social, comfort needs and desires with your input. Your individualized care plan is monitored, evaluated and updated routinely.
