“[Heart ‘n Home] employees and volunteers go out of their way to provide the best care that they can to their patients and the patient’s families. We often receive calls or a visit from a Heart ‘n Home staff member to discuss various situations that don’t fit into the ‘standard needs’ that we would expect.  Being in a fairly rural area, the needs, just due to logistics and lifestyle are different. We find opportunities to work outside the box to find solutions that enable our patients to continue to do the things that they want or need to do.”
