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 onsite hospice houses. 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.
Our patients get care in their own homes, in hospitals, in nursing homes or assisted living facilities, or in one of our three onsite hospice houses.
Gerald Turgeon, D.O., vice president of medical services, leads a care team that brings skill and sensitivity in meeting patients’ physical, spiritual and emotional needs.
Medicare and Medicaid cover hospice care, as do most private health insurance policies. In addition, thanks to the generosity of our donors, services are available to anyone who needs them regardless of ability to pay.
Our Hospice Houses
Our house is your house. Most of our patients receive hospice care in their own homes, but patients requiring more intense medical care may stay at one of our three hospice houses. Our hospice houses offer a homelike, serene setting for patients.
