We are locally owned and operated with an experienced and compassionate team that will be there to help support you during this difficult time and ease the burdens of end-of-life events.
Heartstrings Hospice's medical director is Board Certified in Hospice and Palliative Care. Our specialized training in the latest therapies for pain and symptom control enable the patient to live their life fully and as comfortably as possible.
No matter how much we share with those we love, it never seems like enough when faced with a life-limiting illness. When life is defined by months and weeks instead of years, Heartstrings Hospice can assure your loved one receives the best care possible.
Heartstrings Hospice treats the person, not the disease. Heartstrings Hospice professionals and volunteers address the medical, social, psychological, and spiritual needs of both the patient and family.
A sentiment that is at the core of what we do at Heartstrings Hospice. By addressing not only the physical, but also the emotional and spiritual needs.
The hospice philosophy holds that end-of-life care should emphasize the quality of life. Our objective is to treat the whole person not just the disease.
A referral to Heartstrings Hospice will assure that your patient will receive the palliative care and support services with the compassion and respect.
“ I could never say enough good things about Heartstrings Hospice; they are the most caring, compassionate group of people. The professionalism of the nurses and staff show how they treat the patients with not only empathy and kindness, but as if they were caring for their own family member. They approach the challenges that every patient and their immediate family face when dealing with life changing diagnoses, as a whole picture not just the patient's illness. We know that they have taken great care of my father-in-law while battling his terminal and progressing prostate cancer, but when my mother-in-law, whom is the immediate caregiver, became ill herself and had to be hospitalized your staff went above and beyond to assist with making sure that my father-in-law was okay. They made extra trips to check on him and to make sure that his stand-in caregiver understood about his medications and routine. They also checked on how my mother-in-law's status was and if she was getting better. What more could I say? Thank you and it means a lot to our family that they have been there for us, all of us.
“ My mother-in-law was at the place where she was unable to get in a car to go to the doctor. The hospice nurse came in and visited her every week. They informed the family of her condition, her needs and what to expect at this time in her life. They supplied her needs with dignity and respect for the family."
“You were so wonderful to Gus and to me and made a difficult time so much better for both of us. I thank God for you and will always remember each of you.
