Heartland Hospice provides outreach to the community

Heartland Hospice provides care and comfort for those who need it. PROVIDED

In an effort to educate the local community about the benefits of hospice services for eligible patients, Heartland Hospice is sharing recent findings from a Gallup survey conducted for the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

The survey found that an overwhelming majority of adults said they would be interested in the comprehensive program of care at home that hospice programs provide. Yet most Americans know little or nothing about their eligibility for or availability of hospice.

“By enrolling in hospice services, eligible patients and their families receive necessary emotional and physical support,” states Lynn Brooks, Administrator for Heartland Hospice. “The hospice care team can focus on pain and physical symptom management and develop a coordinated care plan, taking into account the needs of the patient and the patient's caregivers,” explains Brooks, “in this way, those eligible for hospice can receive the care and comfort they need now.”
