Hospice Care

Treasure Coast Hospice is here to help . . .

Let us care for your loved one with the highest quality end-of-life care in our community. Patients receive care wherever they call home, including nursing homes or assisted living facilities. If a higher level of care is needed, we offer three Inpatient Units. Patients receiving the special care of hospice often feel better and live longer.

What is Hospice Care?

Everyone deserves quality of life at every age and in every circumstance, including those special last days or months of one’s life. Treasure Coast Hospice brings dignity and calm to patients who want to continue to live their life to the fullest.

Our team of physicians, nurses, aides, counselors, social workers, chaplains and volunteers offers support and care that enable a patient to live as normal a life as possible, pain-free and on their own terms. The care team is more like an extended family than a medical staff. They bring skill and sensitivity in meeting physical, spiritual and emotional needs of patients, and they include the whole family in their compassionate support.

Patients receive hospice care in their own homes, in hospitals, in nursing homes or assisted living facilities, or in one of our three Inpatient Units. Read more about our Inpatient Units.

 

Veterans Program

As a Level Three We Honor Veterans Partner with the VA and other veterans organizations, Treasure Coast Hospice is honored to care for veterans with advanced illness. Read more about our Veterans Program.

 

Treasured Pets

We recognize that pets can bring comfort to patients and families.  HosPet volunteers and their certified therapy dogs visit patients at home, assisted living residences, nursing homes and at our Inpatient Units. Our Treasured Pets program is available to anyone under hospice care who owns a pet. Read more about out Treasured Pets Program.
