Mercy Center Trainings

Since opening in 2003, the Mercy Center hospice has been helping hundreds receive the care they need.

Recognizing the scarcity of nursing and palliative care services, and the significant portion of ill and elderly Georgians who lacked proper care and support, AFG partnered with Abbess Mariam to establish the first hospice facility and in-home palliative care program in Georgia. This program provides free, individualized in-home and hospice care to Georgia’s vulnerable elderly and terminally ill.

The Mercy Center Hospice held training sessions for their caretakers. This team will now have the skills to support individuals residing at the hospice, along with approximately 100 other patients annually who receive home visits under the Home Care program. Caretakers adopt a comprehensive approach to ensure that every patient's needs, whether medical, spiritual, or psychological, are met.

The Mercy center is also home to a nursing school for hospice care, the only one of its kind in Georgia. Trainings here are free to students and set them up for the chance to pursue a sustainable and rewarding career.
