HOSPICE MEDICAL DIRECTOR IS A BENEFIT TO THE BEND COMMUNITY
Bend resident, Anita Henderson, M.D. is now serving hospice and palliative care patients of Heart ‘n Home Hospice & Palliative Care for the Bend office. We are excited to have her as our Medical Director at Heart ‘n Home. Dr. Henderson has a very big heart, and truly loves serving others. Read Dr. Henderson’s full biography.
“I chose family medicine as my specialty of choice because it seemed to offer the best opportunity for treating the whole patient. I approach wellness and illness from a holistic perspective, and work to include the patient’s family as an integral part of the care plan.” Said Dr. Henderson.
She practiced family medicine in Oregon for 6 years, before switching to hospice work in July 2013. Her motivation for the change came after investigating the opportunities in hospice, after she kept hearing from a close friend about how much she loved working as a hospice nurse.
Dr. Henderson says, “One of the things I love most about my work in hospice is that there is space for giving and receiving from practitioner to patient.”
