Hospice Care Testimonies from Families

May 29, 2018 | Treasure Coast Hospice

My family wanted to thank all the wonderful people who helped care for our mother. Her case social manager and her case nurse, were amazing, as were all the other wonderful people who helped make out mother’s life brighter and easier. Your dedication to what you do is astounding and it takes a special type of person to do this work. We are forever grateful to you and your organization.

Thanks so much for the care you gave her (our mom). It’s a wonderful organization. Don’t know how much she would have suffered (the family too!) if not for you folks.

Thank you all for making my father’s last days so comfortable and peaceful. Every one of you were so kind, gentle and helpful to him and all of us and we are so very grateful for people like you with such warm hearts. I can’t praise you all enough for the wonderful job you do. It’s so comforting. Thank you will all our hearts.

We want to thank the entire team of wonderful people that cared for our mother in her last days. Everyone at hospice house, the home nurses, aides and social workers. They all made a difficult time easier to bear. What a wonderful group of people you are, true angels!

To all who worked so hard on Team Beach Comber. I’d like to thank each and every member for the job you did. You all extended so much care in your own ways, with gentle kindness, thoughtfulness, and work beyond our expectations. Our family will forever remember what you’ve all done to ease him into his new world with God and other loved ones.

Dear Hospice Nurses,

Words cannot express my heartfelt appreciation for all the loving care given my mother in her grave hours of need.  I will always be grateful.

A Message from Our CEO

Susan de Cuba

President and Chief Executive Officer

Few creatures inspire as much wonder as the hummingbird. Tiny, yet strong enough to migrate 500 miles across the Gulf of Mexico, this brilliant bird is the ultimate symbol of resilience. So it’s only fitting that we have incorporated a hummingbird into our new look and logo to symbolize our organization’s life-affirming mission.

Under the Treasure Coast Hospice name, we have grown our services beyond our cornerstone hospice program to include palliative care, grief support counseling and specialized pediatric care. To better reflect our expanded scope of community services, we have changed the name of our parent organization to Treasure Health, while our flagship hospice program will continue to be called Treasure Coast Hospice.

Hospice will always be the heart of our mission. The same outstanding care the community has known since 1982 will continue. The experience we’ve gained during the past 35 years translates well to other services that improve quality of life. Our full spectrum of support includes Treasure Coast Hospice, Treasure Health Palliative Care, Treasure Health Pediatric Care and Treasure Health Grief Support.

With all of our services, our goal is to empower patients and families with the knowledge and support they need to make every moment count.  Guiding our efforts is a caring community of health professionals, volunteers and donors. Like me, they believe that in all stages of illness, everyone deserves to experience the best possible quality of life.

With our comprehensive, compassionate approach to palliative care, hospice services and grief support, we are building communities that allow people to drive their own destinies for the highest quality of life in every health circumstance.

We are excited to embrace a fresh brand that helps us promote our life-affirming philosophy and look forward to having you join us as a trusted partner in supporting our community’s healthcare journey.
