A durable power of attorney for finances or financial power of attorney is simply a way to allow someone else to manage your finances in the event that you become incapacitated and are unable to make those decisions yourself. The power is granted in a document, and it is not only useful for you, but it can really help your family in times of crisis, it grants someone legal authority to act on your behalf for financial issues.

A durable power of attorney for health care or medical power of attorney will allow a designated a person to make all decisions about your health care, if you are unable to make these decisions yourself. This applies to all health care decisions and for all types of medical conditions.

    • “The Homestead Hospice Greenwood, SC staff were so kind and compassionate to my family and to my mother, and I personally recommend Homestead  to others both professionally and personally.“

      -Dr. Joy Draper
    • “When I was taking care of my parents while raising my 2 young children, I was lucky to have been introduced to Homestead Hospice. They helped me take care of my parents during this difficult time”.

    • “Homestead Hospice of Greenwood, SC is currently providing care for residents in Ashley Place, assisted living facility. The staff has been kind and compassionate to our residents and families, and, we receive positive feedback often.  We are impressed with the interaction homestead staff have with our residents for activities and nurturing arts events as well. They provides excellent care to our residents, and we are very pleased with these services”.

      -Nursing Resident Director, Chris Sayer
    • “My Dad was in ICU with Leukemia. His wish was to pass away at home and not in the hospital. After three long weeks of being in ICU he was not improving so he was referred to Hospice. Homestead Hospice, Warner Robins received the referral and he was home same day. He was put on Continuous Care, the Homestead team never left. He passed away the next day peaceful at home surrounded by his family. I know this would not have happened without Shay Massey the Administrator at the Warner Robins office working so hard to get him home on high flow O2. My family and I will always be grateful for the love and care shown to my Dad and family during this time. I know that we wouldn't have been able to go through this without the Warner Robins, Homestead team.“
