If you are a person who has musical talents and would love to share that talent, Heartland Hospice patients would love for you to share your gift with them in one of our facilities. Music is a common bond that can bring those who are ill or lonely together. Heartland Hospice would love for you to share your musical talents at one of our facilities 1-3 times a month. Volunteer training will be provided and visits to our facilities will be scheduled at your convenience. Please contact Karen at 1-800-590-4329 for more information.

About Heartland Hospice
8075 Creekside Drive, Suite 120, Portage, MI 49024, US
The mission of Heartland Hospice is to provide quality hospice care to patients with a limited life expectancy, as well as, support to 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 to the care delivered to patients either in their own home or extended care facility; working cooperatively with area health care providers and other community resources. Heartland Hospice strives to provide care to all who are eligible and need hospice care irrespective of ability to pay.
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. The hospice staff is actively involved in all aspects of the patient's care. This professional staff collaborates with the patient, family, attending physician, and staff (if patient is residing in an extended care facility. The hospice team concentrates on providing comfort, pain and symptom management, spiritual and emotional support. We believe that a good relationship with the patient's health care providers is essential to the emotional and physical well-being of our patients and their families. 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. Program features:
24-hour, 7-day-a-week availability and support, individually tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient. Care provided under the direction of experienced licensed nursing staff. A caring and comfortable environment.
A variety of accommodations from which to choose. Pain and symptom management.
Access to spiritual, emotional, and psychosocial support. An atmosphere that encourages friends and family to be involved and active in the program of care.
