We Make House Calls
These are clearly unusual times we are living in and things can feel extremely overwhelming. We want you to know that if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a chronic or terminal illness and you think hospice care might be the next step, you can call us directly. We will set up an assessment for you or your loved one right away.
Don’t wait until your pain or symptoms are so bad that you feel you must go to the emergency room. Suncoast Hospice care can include:
- A care team of expert hospice and palliative medical and clinical professionals who treat and relieve pain and symptoms as well as provide emotional, spiritual, social and bereavement (grief) support, caregiving training and guidance with health care decision making. Trained volunteers also provide essential support. The team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- Integrative medical treatment and palliative arts that combine traditional medicine with aromatherapy, recorded music and other specialized practices to decrease pain and stress and create comfort and relaxation.
- Suncoast Hospice Care Centers with 24/7 access to skilled medical treatment to get excessive pain and symptoms under control.
- We can continue to care for you in your homes or through telehealth/technology, or a combination of both – whatever you are most comfortable with.
We are here for you 24/7. If you have questions or feel you or a loved one may need an assessment, call our Care Navigators any time at (727) 467-7423.
