Your comfort is our priority
Living with a serious illness or chronic condition can make you feel that you no longer have control over your physical health and well-being. However, your pain and symptoms are manageable with the proper treatment. Our staff and trained volunteers are experts in pain control and symptom management.
Suncoast Hospice is here to help you regain a sense of control over your life by helping you design a personalized palliative care program to ease your pain, discomfort and symptoms.
Palliative care eases not only the physical pain but can also help with the emotional and spiritual pain you, as well as your family and caregivers may be experiencing.
Your Palliative Care Team
Suncoast Hospice takes a team approach to your palliative care, and you and your family guide the care provided. We come to you, wherever you live – your residence, your hospital, your nursing home, assisted living facility or any other place you may call home.
Depending on your needs, members of your palliative care team may include:
Board-certified palliative care physicians
Home health aides
Licensed counseling therapist
Your palliative care team will follow your healthcare wishes and help you to manage and control pain and ease any symptoms.
We understand how painful living with a chronic condition or terminal illness can be. We can help you find the information and support you need to make decisions that are right for you.
Benefits of palliative care

spiritual support, which help ease the physical and emotional pain and
suffering caused by a serious illness. Watch Dr. Guerrier discuss the
