In an effort to help others understand how committed Heart ‘n Home is to integrity and providing quality hospice care, you first have to understand Cindy and her passion. It is Cindy’s leadership that is the driving force behind that vision.
When Cindy Lee and her two sons, Kristopher and Todd Stice started Heart ‘n Home, Cindy would lay awake at night and wonder how she would be able to help everyone see hospice in the same light as she sees it. Cindy views hospice as one of the greatest wonders of the world – like the birth of a baby. Sometimes we wait a long time to experience the birth. Sometimes it comes way too early and unexpected; however, the miracle is the same. Cindy feels that you will never experience the depth and tenderness of love as well as the reverence for life that is seen at the bedside of a hospice patient. When hospice providers take the physical pain away from patients, only then can the patients and families work through the spiritual and psychosocial issues that come with the end-of-life journey. Hospice can be some of the hardest work to do, but Cindy believes she will never find another work as rewarding.
Extra: The Memory Tree in the picture shown is a way for our staff to honor and memorialize those we’ve served for the year. Each office has a 7ft tall tree and takes special care when adding a “leaf.” Each leaf has a name, every name is a patient, every patient is a person, and every person has a story. And each time we look we can be reminded of their story.
