Spotlight: Minerva Jones, RN, BSN - Clinical Team Manager
I love the fact that I get to make a difference in so many patients and families’ lives while they are receiving great hospice care from our dedicated staff.
A personal experience opened Minerva Jones’ eyes to hospice care. As a young student, she saw her 39-year-old uncle benefit from care when his hospice team visited him at home. The comfort and support that her uncle and family received left an impression, forging Minerva’s healthcare path as a hospice nurse.
Fifteen years later, she leads a clinical team that cares for patients at local nursing homes, assisted living residences and at home. “Our hospice teams provide extra eyes and ears for families who may not be able to visit their loved ones. Culturally, people view death in various ways. We understand those differences and are dedicated to comforting and supporting the many cultural communities we serve.”
Minerva considers her Treasure Coast Hospice colleagues “family.” Like family helping family, “we support one another so that we can all be our best when caring for our patients and families.”
