Hospice Care

Springhill Home Care & Hospice, is an established, full-service Alabama hospice and home health agency that provides a superior quality of services in a caring manner.​

What is hospice?

Hospice is a benefit and a philosophy of care that allows those with a life-limiting illness to continue to live life to the fullest. This benefit offers access to an interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals with the expertise necessary to help and empower patients and families to manage their care in the comfort of their own home. This holistic approach utilizes a team approach, which includes the patient and the family, to address physical, social, spiritual, emotional, and personal care needs.

This team, together with the patient and family, consists of healthcare professionals and includes a nurse, aide, chaplain, social worker, bereavement coordinator, the hospice medical director, access to volunteer services, and often, the patient’s primary physician or specialist. 

Our Philosophy

Hospice affirms life.

Hospice exists to provide support and care for persons in the last phases of a life-limiting illness so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.

Hospice exists in the belief that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring community, patients and families/caregivers will be free to attain a degree of mental preparation for death that is satisfying to them.

Our Purpose

The purpose of our hospice program is to provide support and care for people in the final phase of a terminal illness, so they can live life as fully and as comfortably as possible. Springhill Hospice believes that through personalized services, patients and families obtain the necessary education and skills needed to be prepared for end of life care.

Springhill Hospice has local Medical Directors, Registered Nurses, Hospice Aides, Social Workers, Chaplains and Volunteers in each of the areas we serve.

The comfort of the patient is the most important goal of our hospice staff. We recognize the importance of relief for the caregiver and family as the patient’s needs escalate. Springhill Hospice’s interdisciplinary approach keeps the entire team aware of the needs of the entire family.
