This page will be updated as new information becomes available.
April 2021 - Treasure Coast Hospice has invited patient visitor volunteers to return to service. Volunteers who have completed their Covid-19 vaccines and wish to resume their valuable role as a patient visitor should complete the COVID-19 Volunteer Return to Service Consent Form that was sent.
November 19, 2020 - Due to an increase in the positivity rate in our community and out of an abundance of caution, we are placing a hold on all face-to-face patient/volunteer visits. Volunteer services that do not have direct patient contact such as administrative and thrift store support, pen pals, and memory bear/blanket/mask sewers will continue at this time.
August 2020 - Our Grief Support Team conducted its first virtual Camp Good Grief this month.
