Are you a caregiver?
Did a "yes" come to mind quickly and clearly? Or, like many people who grow gradually into their caregiver roles, did you hesitate to answer? There are as many different types of caregivers as there are people lending a hand to assist a loved one, family member or friend.
How can Suncoast Hospice help?
In addition to traditional hospice care, Suncoast Hospice offers a range of programs to meet your needs and the needs of the person you are caring for at different stages of illness and caregiving. Caregiver support, groups and training
are available to any caregiver in Pinellas County. The person you are caring for does not have to be a Suncoast Hospice patient.
Join us for a caregiver coffee break, a caregiver teletalk, caregiver connect seminar or participate in a confident caregiver training class. We offer a variety of groups, trainings and other events for caregivers. One-to-one counseling is also available for persons adjusting to a new diagnosis or living with a serious illness.
Please visit our calendar
to see the complete list of upcoming caregiver support groups, training and events.
Talk with us
As an advocate for someone who is ill, you need to know about available care options. Suncoast Hospice provides clinical care focused on supporting you and the person in your care to live each day to the fullest. Hospice care is not about giving up. It is about comfort, well-being and quality of life.
Suncoast Hospice can offer guidance and support as you adjust to the changes in your life and help provide information about services and resources available to you.
