At Heartwood Home Health & Hospice, we pride ourselves on the quality of care and the comprehensive range of services that we provide to patients within a variety of settings. Comfort — not cure — is at the heart of our services. Great emphasis is placed on controlling the patient’s pain and all attendant discomforts.
Hospice is not so much a physical space as an approach to the provision of care. The hospice concept is based on comfort, specialized care and dignity for patients with life-limiting illnesses. It adopts a holistic approach that addresses every aspect of terminal or other illnesses. Heartwood Home Health and Hospice incorporates medical, emotional, physical and spiritual care for the patient and the patient’s family. Support is also provided during bereavement and beyond.
We believes that the quality of care that one receives at the end of life is just as important as the quality of care that is given at the beginning of life. Heartwood Home Health & Hospice provides the services to achieve that quality!
Ensuring your comfort is our aim. As such, whenever it is at all possible, we encourage patients to stay in their own homes. Based on our experiences, research studies and anecdotal evidence, your home is the ideal setting for your care and comfort, rather than staying in a facility.
