Facing a serious illness can be stressful enough on its own. As the illness progresses and your health care needs change, figuring out where to go next or who to talk to can add another layer of stress and confusion on top of an already difficult situation.

The team at Gulfside Healthcare Services has a solution: health care options that progress as your needs change.

Gulfside’s three primary services provide you more choices for the right quality care at the right time, with the ability to transition to and from each service seamlessly as your needs change. Their team of expert clinicians will continuously evaluate your needs and assist you accordingly, ensuring you are getting the right care tailored to your level of illness.

Three Options for Care:

1. Palliative Care: Treatment plans for chronic illness

Palliative care is comprehensive treatment that focuses on the symptoms and stress of living with a chronic illness. Its goal is to make it easier for you to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life. Palliative care gives you a chance to live life more comfortably and keep doing the things you enjoy.

2. Home Health: Skilled nursing, therapy and post-surgery recovery

Gulfside’s skilled home health is aimed at helping you recover from a surgery, injury or illness at home. This can include a knee replacement, hip replacement, bone fracture, rehab after a stroke and more. Having skilled home health care means you can get back to the things you love doing faster and learn new ways to keep your independence.

3. Hospice: Compassionate care for end of life

Hospice care provides peace and dignity through comprehensive care for patients when an illness has progressed to end stages. The experienced team at Gulfside Hospice provides quality, compassionate care to patients, offering peace and comfort alongside expert medical care and emotional support to help the entire family through this journey.

Easier Transitions, Seamless Care

With these three levels of care, the Gulfside team is able to help you and your loved ones no matter what stage you are at now, and continue to care for you as life progresses. When it’s time to move to the next level of care, the Gulfside family of services makes that transition as smooth as possible. By linking the three service lines, you get individualized care that meets your needs.

Gulfside Healthcare Services is the only organization in the Tampa Bay area to offer all three types of care. Dealing with a serious illness is stressful enough on its own. Being part of Gulfside’s continuum of care means easier transitions through the stages of life for you and your loved ones.
