There for you ...

You can count on Community Hospice to be there for you with compassionate care and knowledgeable guidance every step of your journey. Our experienced physicians, nurses and other professional caregivers offer you personalized choices and options for where you can receive care, the most up-to-date approaches to pain and symptom management, and peace of mind to help you live better with advanced illness.

Your compassionate guide

We will work to meet your unique physical, emotional and spiritual needs and wishes, while respectfully guiding and empowering you and your caregivers with the knowledge and ongoing support you need to help you make the most of the months, weeks, days and moments you have with your loved ones. We help your caregivers understand what to expect and provide ongoing emotional support.

Community-based ... community-supported

For more than 35 years, Community Hospice has been focused on serving our local Northeast Florida community with knowledgeable, compassionate hospice care. Our employees, volunteers, board members and partners live and work in the community to guide and support our cause. To continue offering the highest quality of care, generous support from the community helped us build our inpatient care centers and establish administrative offices, as well as support unfunded programs to benefit the community.

Where you live

Community Hospice has home care teams that can visit patients in every neighborhood in our five-county area, as well as specialized teams assigned to local nursing homes and assisted living communities, and dedicated staff on site at Northeast Florida hospitals. If a higher level of care is needed, we offer state-of-the-art, homelike inpatient care centers conveniently located around the First Coast community.

Meeting your needs

Last year, more than 1,000 local physicians trusted Community Hospice with their patients. The following comments are from patients' family members:

  • "They were there on the phone anytime I wanted to talk."
  • "Not only did my brother receive great care, but the Community Hospice team was always there for my family."
  • "Community Hospice staff have a way of talking to you to prepare you for this ... They are there for you."
  • "I still get a call every month to say, ‘We’re just checking in to see if you need us ... We’re here for you."

A valuable resource

Even before care is needed, Community Hospice is a valuable resource for information and guidance on topics including advance care planning, grief and loss, and caregiver support.
