Treasure Coast Hospice gave Bill Furst the confidence to live his life
“They aren’t strangers,” said Bill Furst. Treasure Coast Hospice’s team of physicians, nurses, hospice aides, counselors, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers offer support and care that enable the patient to live as normal a life as possible. “They are like family when they come into your home.”
Furst family found they didn't have to do it alone
Bill’s COPD was taking a toll on him and his family, but they got the help they needed when he called Treasure Coast Hospice.
You don’t have to do it alone.
That’s reassuring to know regardless of the situation. But if your life changes due to an advanced illness, change it again. Know that professional, comforting support is just a call away.
Treasure Coast Hospice can offer you and your loved ones the opportunity to live life to its fullest.
“Hospice services gave me the confidence to live a normal life,” said Bill Furst of Ft. Pierce, bucking the common beliefs about hospice. Bill’s advanced COPD was taking a toll on him and his family. When they chose to call hospice, they were surprised and pleased to get the help they needed — in care that felt more like extended family than medical staff.
“They aren’t strangers,” Bill Furst said. Treasure Coast Hospice’s team of physicians, nurses, hospice aides, counselors, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers offer support and care that enable the patient to live as normal a life as possible. “They are like family when they come into your home,” Furst continued. Their expertise in pain management and other therapies offer a renewed quality of life that provides the patient and their loved ones with greater joy and fulfillment in their time together.
Furst was in Treasure Coast Hospice care for eight months before passing peacefully at home. The length of time a patient remains under hospice care varies greatly. Care is flexible: If a patient’s condition improves and they no longer qualify, they can resume traditional medical services. Most important, Treasure Coast Hospice aims to improve the quality of life for each patient. Patients and families benefit most when they engage hospice as soon as possible so that every day is an opportunity to live as Bill Furst did: with confidence.
Whether a patient’s care is offered at home, in one of Treasure Coast Hospice’s houses, a nursing home, hospital, or assisted living facility, the quality of care and compassion remains the same. That’s been our commitment for more than 30 years.
