A Special Kind of Caring

As the original hospice serving Northwest Alabama, Hospice of the Shoals enjoys a long tradition of providing loving, compassionate, highly skilled care for patients with a life limiting illness and their families. Hospice of the Shoals helps maintain or improve the quality of life when the quantity of life can no longer be extended. We exist solely to provide highly skilled patient care and practical, emotional, and spiritual support for their families. Thanks to donations we have provided over $1 million in care to patients that did not have the ability to pay.
Hospice of the Shoals is blessed to have wonderful, caring professional staff, board members and volunteers. We could not exist without their love, compassion and hours of dedication to this agency. Volunteers and board members give countless hours making sure our patients, families and staff have what they need. They understand how important non-profit organizations are to every community, how they make a difference in the lives of others.

Hospice of the Shoals provides an array of services to enable our patients to live their lives as fully and independent as possible:

  • Registered Nursing Services
  • Social Worker Services
  • Pain and symptom management
  • Spiritual Support
  • Bereavement Support
  • Volunteer Services
  • Certified Hospice Aide Services
