100% of our Hospice Care is provided in the patient’s home, whether “home” for them is where they grew up, nursing home, assisted living facility, adult family home, etc.
Heartlinks Hospice Care is a highly specialized and individualized form of care designed to help patients with a life-limiting illness make the most of their final months.
Most people do not want to die in pain, alone in a hospital, hooked up to machines. They would prefer to be at home, with good pain and symptom management, and amongst things they are familiar and with people that they love. Heartlinks Hospice is dedicated to making this happen.
Heartlinks Hospice staff and volunteers help support patients, their families and friends, in focusing on what is most important to them…spending time together, sharing memories, saying goodbye, finding peace, and caring for one another.
Most Hospice patients have a life expectancy of six months or less. This is often a difficult time, yet many families report that hospice services helped them care for their loved one better and find meaning, even joy, in the last days of their loved ones life.
