Clinical Services

Treasure Coast Hospice provides clinical services to meet the end-of-life care needs of our patients. Clinical services primarily address the physical and comfort needs of the patient. We also assist with social, emotional and spiritual care, as well as interpersonal relationships with family and close friends.

We provide compassionate care for the patient and family as a unit, using the skills and expertise of many disciplines. Making the choice to begin palliative (comfort) care through Treasure Coast Hospice allows the patient and family to remain together in the comfort and security of their home or in a home-like setting. Hospice care is available anywhere the patient lives.

The choice for hospice care is made by patients and their primary physicians. Treatment includes relief of pain to improve patient comfort and quality of life.

Once admitted to hospice, the patient is served by a care team. The care team consists of the primary care physician, the hospice physician, licensed nurse, hospice aide, social worker, grief counselors, chaplain and trained volunteers, all tending to the patient’s physical, psychosocial and spiritual needs. The patient’s nurse, social worker and chaplain are available for support, including visits to the home if necessary, on a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week basis.

All patient care, medication, medical supplies and medical equipment related to the patient’s diagnosis are provided by Treasure Coast Hospice as part of the Medicare or Medicaid hospice benefit. Many private insurance policies cover hospice care. Treasure Coast Hospice will also provide hospice care to patients not eligible for the Medicare and Medicaid hospice benefit and who do not have private insurance. This is possible through the generosity of the community through donations, bequests, memorials and fundraising efforts.
