Heartland Hospice is a growing non-profit dedicated to providing high quality hospice services in Sonoma, Napa, and Marin counties. We achieve this by recruiting professional, caring staff; encouraging patients to become active participants in care; and by creating an atmosphere of supportive leadership. We value strong, mutually beneficial relationships with referral sources, employees, patients and caregivers and the community at large.
Hospice is a special kind of care designed to provide comfort, as well as spiritual and emotional support for people in the final phase of a terminal illness. Hospice focuses on enhancing a patient's quality of life, rather than length of life. It neither hastens nor postpones death; it affirms life and regards dying as a normal process. The hospice program stresses human values that go beyond the physical needs of the patient. Hospice ensures that patients spend their final days in dignity and comfort.
