Spend the last months of life in the company of family, on your own terms and in an atmosphere of peace and acceptance. Our goal is to allow you to continue to live life as you always have, with meaning and dignity. Patients receive care wherever they call home, including assisted living facilities and senior nursing facilities. If more-critical care is needed, we offer lovely onsite hospice houses for your comfort. Patients receiving the special care that hospice offers 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 throughout their journey.
Our hospice team of physicians, nurses, hospice aids, 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 hospice 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 include the whole family in their compassionate support.
Patients are cared for in their own homes, in hospitals, in nursing homes or assisted living facilities, or in one of our three hospice houses.
Hospice Care Team
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.
Hospice care is covered by Medicare and Medicaid as well as most private health insurance policies and, thanks to the generosity of Treasure Coast Hospice Foundation 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.
