Leaders in Home Health Care Service
and Hospice in Mobile
Mercy Medical is the longest-running healthcare facility of its kind. The renowned hospice and home health care service was founded by the Sisters of Mercy, and has faithfully served Mobile and Baldwin Counties since 1949. As a member of Trinity Health, Mercy Medical still remains true to the Sisters' original mission of continuing the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.
Though it was originally a convalescent home, Mercy Medical now caters to the healthcare needs of the community in a variety of ways:
1. Mercy Hospice
Mercy Medical brought the first hospice to southern Alabama in 1979. Mercy Hospice is still the only faith-based, non-profit hospice in the area.
2. Mercy Home Care
Mercy Home Care is a not-for-profit, faith-based program offering palliative care for patients who are not ready to go to hospice but need their symptoms managed. Hospice nurses can also visit a patient's home and provide treatments, including infusion medications and pain management. Mercy Home Care provides excellent nursing and therapy services in the home, including physical and occupational therapies to enhance the outcomes and speed recovery.
3. Guardian Angel
Guardian Angel is a pediatric hospice and home health care service pioneered by Mercy Medical in 1998. It still remains the only pediatric program of its kind in southern Alabama.
4. Portier Place
Mercy Medical's Portier Place provides independent, retirement living to elderly patients who may require medical care and help with household chores, but wish to maintain their independence. The staff at Portier's Spring Hill complex provides residents with two meals a day and assistance with light housekeeping.
Mercy Life, the first Program of All Inclusive Care For the Elderly (PACE) in Alabama, was opened by Mercy Medical in the 2012. The program provides hospitalization, physician visits, and a home health care service for the poor and underserved seniors of the area.
6. Project Lifesaver
Another non-profit program for the homebound elderly is Project Lifesaver. Mercy Medical has partnered with police and sheriffs in Mobile and Baldwin Counties to maintain the safety of patients with a tendency to wander. This is accomplished through the use of wristband transmitters that emit signals that can be tracked by law enforcement.
If you or your loved is in need of a home health care service, hospice, or a PACE program, then look no further than Mercy Medical in Mobile, AL. Give us a call today for a consultation.
