Care Wherever the Patient Calls Home

The beauty of hospice services is they are designed to meet you where you are. Whether you live in your own home or apartment, the home of a family member or friend, or in an assisted-living or nursing home facility, hospice services are accessible to all eligible patients. Our services are even available in hospital settings.

If you would like to learn more about our care, please call us at 850-878-5310 or 24/7, toll free at 800-772-5862. Please remember to dial the area code even when calling local.

Our Medical Team

Physicians play an essential role in the care of Big Bend Hospice patients. Patients and their families have the ability to choose to have their physician follow them, or use our board-certified Hospice physicians to develop and oversee the patient’s plan of care. Physicians are in regular communication with the Hospice team to assure that the patient’s medical needs are taken care of during their time with Big Bend Hospice.
