About Longleaf

We care about addressing the diverse, seen and unseen, needs of patients and their families.

Who We Are

We are deeply rooted in the communities we serve, and to the people who live and die there.​

Longleaf Hospice is a locally-owned hospice with offices located Covington, Atlanta & Roswell, offering end-of-life care to those with life limiting illnesses in the communities we serve. We believe that this very special care is best provided by professionals who live and work in the community they serve.

Longleaf Hospice was founded in 2009 to provide a hospice alternative for patients with cancer. Often times, patients diagnosed with cancer have symptoms that are more difficult to manage. Given the company conception, Longleaf Hospice is uniquely positioned to provide specialized care for cancer patients as well as an array of other diseases.  At Longleaf Hospice, we integrate and address the diverse, seen and unseen needs of patients and their families.

Our Mission

Our mission is to surround patients and their families with compassionate care.

Our “Circle of Care” concept surrounds the patient with support, ensuring the highest possible quality of life. Longleaf Hospice provides support to natural helpers, including family, friends, personal physicians and members of religious or social groups. The “Circle of Care” Teams are dedicated to helping the patient maintain his/her dignity, increasing their quality of life and providing comfort – not only for physical symptoms, but also for their emotional and spiritual needs.

We believe this is life’s most important journey. We consider it an honor to be able to travel this road with you and provide you and your loved ones with the support needed to be able to enjoy time together versus being consumed with the symptoms of an illness. This should be a time for families to be families.
