Hospice is not a place, rather a philosophy of care that can be provided wherever a patient/family chooses. Services are focused for those with serious and progressive illnesses, such as heart disease, lung disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Hospice care focuses on symptom relief and quality of life, rather than curing illness.
Most people choose to receive hospice care in their homes, however, when a symptom such as pain cannot be managed in the home, patients can choose to receive care in our inpatient hospice unit, Heritage Hospice Inpatient Facility.
We provide the following services:
- Home Care
- Inpatient Care – in the Heritage Hospice inpatient facility or in a home-like setting, such as a nursing home or assisted living facility
- Continuous Care
- Respite Care
- Volunteer Services
- Community Education
