35 Years of Leading Hospice Care in Brevard
Death and dying are never easy topics. It's difficult to face and deal with the impending death of a loved one. That's why for more than 35 years, Hospice of Health First has been there for families as Brevard County's leading provider of hospice care. We focus on improving the quality of life for families dealing with a loved one's end-of-life illness. Each patient and his or her caregivers receive specialized and individualized care meeting their unique physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Focused on caring, instead of curing, Hospice care neither hastens nor prolongs the dying process, but does provide help and comfort in coping with a life-limiting illness.
Hospice of Health First provides services wherever your loved one feels most "at home". Our goal is to keep patients where they are most comfortable, surrounded by their loved ones. We provide care in private homes, assisted living facilities, nursing homes and inpatient facilities such as our William Childs Hospice House, a charming key west-style facility located in a secluded area on the campus of Health First Palm Bay Hospital. Our patients can remain at a place they feel "at home" during most or all of an end-of-life illness, relatively free from pain, surrounded by family and friends and living the rest of life as fully as possible.
The professional staff at Hospice of Health First is on-call 24 hours/seven days a week. Our associates provide skilled nursing care and support services to meet the daily needs of the patient and family during this difficult time.
