South Coast Hospice’s mission is to provide quality and compassionate end of life care to terminally ill patients and bereavement support to their loved ones. We provide care for anyone who qualifies for hospice regardless of their insurance coverage. Since our inception in 1985 we have provided our services without charge to residents in Coos, Northern Curry & Coastal Douglas counties. This has been possible due to the generous support of our community.
The care we provide includes emotional, spiritual, social, systems navigational support, along with physical comfort measures. Each patient has a physician-led hospice team coordinating the care plan with the patient’s PCP. The team has a primary care RN, social worker, hospice aide, and a chaplain, if desired. Patients have access to a hospice nurse 24/7, 365 days a year. We provide durable medical equipment & medications related to the terminal illness as well as guidance and support for the family and caregivers.
SCH has a bereavement support program that is open to everyone throughout our service area to help those who are grieving the loss of a loved one. We have licensed clinical social workers who guide bereavement transition group participants to learn to live in a world without their special person.
Volunteers are the heart of our organization and they help in a variety of ways. Please consider giving your time and talent to help make the end of life experience the best possible for our patients. We need volunteers to offer emotional and social support for patients, respite for caregivers, data entry, clerical, event planning and support, fundraising, and so much more. Please call us if you are interested in joining us.
We believe the end of life should have as much beauty, respect, and dignity as the beginning. Hospice is about hope, ensuring those with terminal illnesses can make the most out of the time they have left.
