Holistic Comfort Care
In hospice care, it is essential to care for a person’s whole well-being and comfort. Our integrative medicine and palliative arts use a holistic approach that combines conventional medicine and complementary practices that bring relief and serenity for our patients.
At the Suncoast Hospice Integrative Medicine Clinic, our team of expert clinicians and specially-trained palliative arts volunteers blends the best of all treatment and modalities in a soothing, caring environment. They focus on balancing overall wellness – body, mind and spirit – and improving quality of life. Volunteers also may serve and comfort patients in their homes, long-term care facilities or the Suncoast Hospice Care Centers.

- Decreased pain
- Reduced nausea and other side effects from chemotherapy, radiation and other treatments
