Our goal is to provide comfort and address symptoms from your life-limiting condition, as well as provide supportive care to your family and other loved ones. We focus on enhancing quality of life while respecting your culture, beliefs and values.

You and your loved ones are supported by a dedicated team of hospice professionals who work with you to help manage the pain and symptoms associated with your illness, and provide personal, respectful care and assistance. This includes emotional and spiritual support.

We will teach you and your family about your disease and what to expect in future stages, as well as about your medicines and ways to increase your comfort.

We are here to help. On-call services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

To provide the support you and your family need during the course of your care with Community Hospice, you may call our 24/7 Patient Priority Line at 904.407.7300 (877.699.7300 toll free) any time day or night.

We realize that every person’s needs are different. Personalized care is based on your individualized needs and those of your family. We work with you, your family and your attending physician to create a plan of care based on these needs and wishes, and help guide you and your family through your hospice journey.
