What is Hospice

Hospice is a special end-of-life care for individuals and families dealing with life-limiting illnesses. Hospice is a patient and family support service that keeps the patient comfortable, teaches the family to provide care, and offers emotional and spiritual support. Hospice is a type of care, rather than a specific place of care, that focuses on comfort rather than cure. We neither hasten nor prolong life, however, at the center of hospice is the belief that each of us should be able to die pain-free with dignity, and that our families receive the necessary support to allow us to do so.


At Heart 'n Home we offer emotional, physical, and spiritual support and assist the patients' loved ones in performing activities of daily living and coping with the emotional challenges they face. Hospice enables patients and their families to live life to its fullest in the comfort of their own homes or wherever they call home. Heart 'n Home is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ensure responsive and timely patient contact for after hour and weekend needs.  We believe in the "it's all about the patient" philosophy.
