Your main contact will be a Treasure Coast Hospice nurse who is trained to help alleviate pain and manage symptoms. Your primary nurse will provide care and education to you and your loved ones and answer any questions you may have.
Our physicians coordinate care with your doctors to help assess and treat pain and symptoms, or act as the primary physician if you do not have one. They review each patient's plan of care to ensure quality, and they even make house calls as necessary.
Hospice aides help with daily living tasks, including personal care such as bathing and hygiene maintenance. They also can assist with light housekeeping and cooking.
Often, patients are concerned about the well-being of their loved ones after hospice services end. Our specially trained bereavement counselors provide expert, ongoing support during the hospice care period and afterwards. Other counselors can help with advance directives, living wills and health-care surrogate information. They also connect patients and their families to helpful community resources.
Many of our families appreciate the spiritual support available upon request to help them in this most difficult time.
Our volunteers, people who truly understand what you are going through, are available to extend friendship and support. If you are interested in volunteering with Treasure Coast Hospice, please visit the Volunteer Opportunities page for more information.
