August 25, 2021 (Jacksonville, Fla.) – Community Hospice & Palliative Care’s Durable Medical Equipment (DME) site moved last week from their location on Beach Boulevard to a new, more centralized location on Salisbury Road. This move will allow for faster deliveries to patients living with advanced illness in their large 16-county service area providing even better care. Dedicated trained technicians offer a caring, gentle approach to deliver this needed equipment during this sensitive time.
DME is available for patients in any care setting and is provided based on the patient’s individualized plan of care. To meet a patient’s physical needs, especially as their condition changes, a wide variety of medical equipment and supplies is provided. Equipment can include hospital beds, special mattresses, oxygen, wheelchairs and walkers, nebulizers, and shower chairs. The care team requests all equipment, relieving caregivers of the physical and financial burden of arranging for these items.
Having an in-house DME is unique to Community Hospice & Palliative Care and allows for needed equipment to be provided to patients in need 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The DME staff provides compassionate, prompt service, equipment set-up, installation, and maintenance. They replenish medical supplies as needed and assist with medical equipment questions or concerns.
