Community Education

It’s never too early to plan for future health needs. Our community representatives hold presentations throughout Martin and St. Lucie counties to help you think through your options and show you how to openly communicate your wishes. With advance-care planning tools, you will assure that your care plan is honored. It’s the key to ensuring that life is lived on your own terms and that each of us makes choices directing our destiny.

Bringing the message of high-quality life to your organization

As experts in discussing the healthcare continuum, our community representatives are trained to speak with groups large and small on navigating difficult healthcare choices. They can present to your group or lead discussions about topics regarding health concerns that often come up as we age.

Each presentation can be tailored to your needs.

Some topics we've discussed:

Advance Care Planning

Throughout our lives, we make plans about where to go to school, where to live, what job to choose, how to raise a family, etc.

Planning gives us a sense of direction, a sense of empowerment. As we move through the stages of our lives, planning is the best thing we can do for ourselves and our family. An advance care plan makes sure that our wishes and decisions will be respected instead of others making decisions for us.

Treasure Coast Hospice is a tremendous resource for you in your Advance Care Planning. We help you understand your available options so that you can make choices that reflect your values and your personal goals. For example, you may choose that in the event of a serious or advanced illness, you want to pursue every medical avenue available to you.

Be in control of your destiny

By planning ahead, you are able to live a high-quality life, bringing much-needed peace of mind to you and your loved ones.

Open Communication

It may seem difficult to talk about these decisions with family. Treasure Coast Hospice helps you open the lines of communication with those you love, so that you can communicate your wishes. One of the tools we use is “Five Wishes®” a guide to help you record your decisions clearly and thoroughly. After all, planning ahead is the kindest gift you can give yourself and your family.

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.
