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 using an interdisciplinary approach in delivering care to patients;either in their own homes or extended care facilities;while 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 Service is a daughter company of HCR Manor Care Inc and services Washtenaw, Monroe, Livingston, Wayne, Lenawee, Oakland and Macomb counties.
Hospice programs are designed to offer support, care and comfort to terminally ill patients in the final stages of life as well as their families. Provided either in-home or within an assisted living or skilled nursing center, our Hospice Care program includes palliative care by hospice professionals, counseling for patient and family as well as pastoral support. In addition, registered nurses, therapists, dietitians and social workers are available to meet all the patients health care needs.
Hospice Care is a promise... a promise to patients who are facing the most difficult time of life, when choices seem few, and the p patient and family situation is most fragile.
