Mission Statement

Community Hospice Circle of Care surrounds our patients with support, ensuring the highest possible quality of life. Community Hospice provides support to natural caregivers/helpers of our patients. The Circle of Care teams are dedicated to helping our patients 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 create a compassionate individualized plan of care to meet the specific needs and wishes of the patient and their family. We integrate and address the diverse needs of the patients and their families.

Description

Backed by decades of medical expertise and healthcare management experiences, our physicians and staff are dedicated to providing comprehensive care that allows our patients to remain at home and enjoy normal activities as long as possible. Community Hospice patients and their families are given access to high-quality care when facing a life-limiting illness or multiple hospitalizations due to a chronic illness. We are a locally-owned and managed hospice agency serving Baldwin and Mobile Counties. Our emphasis is on comfort care (pain and symptom control) maintaining dignity, and increasing quality of life rather than curative treatment. Community hospice honors our Veterans with our special Coins program that salutes our patients that served in the military.
