About Us > Our History

For over 35 years, Hospice of the Golden Isles has been serving our 5-county area as the only full service, not-for-profit hospice.  Since 1980, we have cared for our friends and neighbors in the Glynn, Brantley, McIntosh, Camden and Charlton County communities of southeast coastal Georgia, regardless of ability to pay.

With deep roots in the Golden Isles community, our professional staff of over 100 physicians, registered nurses, LPNs, certified nursing assistants, social workers, musical therapists and chaplains are experts in end-of-life care, offering family and caregiver support, non-medical therapies and bereavement services.

We care for our patients wherever they reside, including our community-based inpatient unit and our residential facility located on the beautiful grounds of Hospice of the Golden Isles.

Our compassionate and generous volunteers offer companionship and support.  Since we first began offering services to the community, we have specially trained our volunteers in hospice care.  Our staff and volunteers alike approach each patient and family with the values we all hold dear - respect, dignity and a celebration of life.  Dedicated to helping their friends and neighbors, some of our volunteers have been serving HGI’s community of patients and families for 30 years.

Our philosophy has always been to help patients remain independent for as long as possible.  Our caregivers engage the patient and family to develop an individualized plan of care, with the Hospice team by the patient’s side for guidance, support and treatment.

Most of our patients receive hospice benefits under Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance. As a non-profit hospice, we have always cared for any patient who needs and wants our services; it is at the core of who we are.  All patients who are eligible for hospice services may receive care from Hospice of the Golden Isles.
