Help for our patients' pets

Woman with dogOur mission at Treasure Coast Hospice is to provide "compassionate, comprehensive, high-quality care to our patients and those who share their lives." Through the Pet Peace of Mind® program we recognize that our patients count their pets among those who share their lives.

The program's goal is to enable Treasure Coast Hospice patients to keep their pets with them throughout their end-of-life journey. The program is available to all of our patients who have pets.

We recognize that many people receiving our care depend on their pets for unconditional love, acceptance, comfort and companionship. When it is needed the most, we are there for the whole family, including the pets.
