Grateful Families Make a Difference

Having a loved one on hospice touches the lives of many people: parents, siblings, grandparents, extended family, and friends. Heartlinks Hospice & Palliative Care strives to bring compassionate and loving care not only to the patient but also to their extended network of family and friends.

Many of the families that we serve ask how they can recognize Heartlinks caregivers whose kindness and compassion was especially meaningful to them during their time with us.

Our Grateful Families program provides an opportunity to say “thank you” for the care that you and your loved ones may have received. A donation the Heartlinks Grateful Families Program will help enhance and continue the outstanding level of care our community has come to expect from us, and ensure it remains accessible to all.

The physician, nurse, social worker, chaplain, volunteer, or other caregiver or team that provided your exceptional care will be notified of your grateful appreciation. As always, all gifts will be recognized and are tax-deductible.

One-time Gifts

Making a one-time tax-deductible donation can be completed in a variety of ways. You can send us a check by mail, use our secure online donation system, or call us by phone. Our online donation system allows you to make a one-time or recurring donation to benefit Heartlinks Hospice or designate your funds to support a specific program.
