Mission Statement

The Heyman HospiceCare team provides medical care to terminally ill patients as well as psychological support, spiritual support, identification and utilization of available community resources and other practical support to our patients and all those involved in their care. To the extent possible, we enable patients to manage their own care in the environment of their choice. We strive to alleviate pain and other symptoms through the least invasive process and to reduce economic and emotional stresses. We encourage understanding of the bereavement experience as a natural and meaningful process. We foster sensitive, informed support of those experiencing grief and assist with their social reentry by offering our services as a bereavement resource for the community.

Description

Heyman HospiceCare's professional staff and volunteers are dedicated to providing compassionate, sensitive and comfort-oriented care to anyone who has a limited life expectancy due to a terminal illness. We diligently pursue the improvement of quality of life for our patients and loved ones. We strive to honor, affirm and celebrate life; to recognize the value of each human being; to help maintain personal dignity; to ensure confidentiality and privacy; and to afford each person we meet with respect. We believe that dying is a natural part of life, not to be hastened or postponed. We aspire to promote a caring community, which will help sustain those left behind.
