About Heartland Hospice

The mission of Heartland Hospice is to provide quality hospice care to patients with a limited life expectancy and to support their caregivers. The quality of life for those we serve is enhanced through palliative and specialized supportive care designed to meet the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of the patients and caregivers. Hospice care is provided by an interdisciplinary team utilizing an approach delivered to patients either in their own home or at an extended care facility. We work cooperatively with health care providers and community resources. Heartland Hospice strives to provide care to all who are eligible and need hospice care irrespective of ability to pay. We are affiliated with ProMedica Senior Care.
Heartland Hospice offers support, care, and comfort to the terminally ill and their families. If a individual has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, and can no longer benefit from a curative treatment program (life expectancy of 6 months or less), Heartland Hospice can help.

We develop an individualized care plan which we monitor and update regularly, adjusting it to meet the patient's needs. Both patients and family members are included in this decision-making process.
