The Heart to Heart Hospice team focuses on enhancing the quality of life for patients with a life-limiting illness and their loved ones by developing a personalized care plan that meets each patient’s needs and wishes. We provide compassionate care for patients with a wide range of life-limiting illnesses, including but not limited to: Cancer, Heart disease, Stroke and Coma, Lung disease, Kidney disease, Liver disease, Multiple sclerosis, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, Parkinson’s and AIDS.
Hospice is a service, or philosophy of care, that is provided in the place the patient calls home. In addition to a private residence, this includes nursing homes and residential facilities. Hospice patients may also receive services at a contracted inpatient facility or hospital; and short-term inpatient care may be provided to help manage pain and control symptoms when needed. Receiving comprehensive care in the environment in which they feel most comfortable will ensure the patient’s dignity is well-preserved. The hospice care team is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and will make regular scheduled visits to assess the patient and provide quality care for the patient and their loved ones.
In addition to caring for the patient, Heart to Heart Hospice strives to provide excellent caregiver support. When the patient’s primary caregiver needs respite time as a relief from their responsibilities, the patient can go into short term inpatient care. Emotional and spiritual support, as well as bereavement care and counseling are offered for up to 13 months to surviving family and friends.
