Is It Time For Hospice?
For those that have never experienced hospice personally, they may not have a full appreciation for the extensive range of services we offer and our support for patients AND caregivers. However, for many, even the word “hospice” can be a challenging topic.
The Bridge of Hope Coordinator serves as your guide, helping you identify needs, providing emotional support for decision making and pointing clients toward valuable community services.
A consultation with a Hearth team member is available anytime, free of charge. This consultation will provide general hospice information, help to identify plan of care goals, assess patient and family needs and give comfort in knowing your loved one will be taken care of.
