When hospice is chosen Heart and Hands Hospice organizes a team of professionals and trained volunteers work together to support the patient and the patient’s family through the final stages of illness and dying. Hospice care does not end with the death of a patient, but continues with support for the family through a 13 month bereavement period.
Whenever possible, Hospice care is offered at home. Familiar surroundings allows patients to live their final days to the fullest, cared for by their loved ones. Families can be together when it means the most, providing the patient’s final days with peace, comfort and dignity.
The National Hospice and Pallative Care Organization website contains basic informational videos on hospice care. They are very informative and may answer many of the questions you might have about hospice.
In addition to end-of-life care, Hearts & Hands Hospice maintains a durable medical equipment loan closet, makes a monthly donation to a community member with health-related expenses, and provides education and support groups in the community.
The durable medical equipment available for loan includes walkers, wheelchairs, bed-side commodes, and more. All equipment is loaned out free of charge to area residents.
If you have questions on any of the services provided by Hearts and Hand Hospice please call the Pioneer Medical Center at (406) 932-4603.
