Coral Bay’s hospice and palliative care program was designed to provide the highest quality of life and comfort for those facing chronic or advanced terminal illness, as well as their loved ones. We wish to facilitate an environment in which the entire family can share the time they have together as fully and comfortably as possible.

Hospice Care

When you become eligible for hospice care, the medical team is no longer looking for a cure or treatment, but to limit pain and increase your comfort. The Coral Bay vision of hospice care means that every person with a life-limiting illness should spend the time they have left pain-free and surrounded by loved ones, in a space in which they feel comfortable and cared for. Our hospice nurses and physicians are on hand around the clock to address medical needs, answer questions, and offer support.

Palliative Care

Like our hospice unit, palliative care at Coral Bay centers on our goal of maintaining the highest quality of life and comfort for our patients. But unlike hospice, which is centered on end of life, palliative care is available for those with chronic conditions such as Stage 4 cancer, COPD or dementia, who are receiving aggressive treatment for illness, or who may simply need palliative support for a challenging condition. Receiving palliative care does not necessarily mean that you will eventually transition to hospice care; in fact, it is often a support for treatment that can significantly extend your life. Other times, it may be the last stage before a terminal diagnosis. In either case, Coral Bay offers comprehensive palliative care that addresses the needs of body, mind, and spirit.

Hospice & Palliative

Caring for body, mind, and spirit

Every member of our staff collaborates to provide respectful, compassionate medical care and pain management for the individual, as well as emotional and practical support for the family. We work together to manage pain and symptoms, administer medication, and acquire any equipment or supplies needed to support the patient.

In addition, we are proud to offer practical and emotional support to our patients and family members with a team of highly skilled social workers, counselors, and chaplains. We also provide special services specifically geared to end-of-life issues, such as music, massage, aroma-and reiki therapies, all administered by board certified therapists. Bereavement counselors are also available for additional support. In every case, we are on call 24/7 for questions and urgent needs.
