The mission of Heartland Hospice is to provide quality Hospice care to patients with a limited life expectancy, as well as, provide 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, social, and spiritual needs of the patients and caregivers. Hospice care is provided by using 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.
Hospice is a special kind of care designed to provide comfort and support for patients facing a terminal illness and their families.
Medical and support services, including nursing care, social services, physician services, counseling, homemaking services, hospice aides, and trained volunteers help the patient and caregiver cope with the illness. Depending on the patient's condition, hospice services may be provided in the patient's home, a skilled nursing facility, assisted living facility or hospital or anywhere the patient calls home.
