What Makes Us Different

  • You don’t have to give up hope to get hospice. Many patients and the loved ones who care for them say they wish hospice care had started sooner.
  • Treatments that provide our patients with comfort and relief may continue, uninterrupted, even after we’ve started providing hospice care.
  • We don’t require that advance directive choices be made such as a “do not resuscitate” order (DNR) or living will to begin providing hospice care.
  • When you need care, we’re ready to provide it. Any day of the year, any time of the day, we can initiate hospice care for you or your loved one.
  • Our heart stretches across the nation. At any given time, Heartland provides comforting care to thousands of patients in communities and neighborhoods across the country.
  • We’re fully accredited by CHAP, the Community Health Accreditation Program. We’ve chosen to follow their additional requirements in order to help advance the highest standards of community-based care.
  • Wherever you are in your health care journey, we’re there to meet you.
  • As mutual care providers, we work closely with your health care professionals to make sure specific protocols are followed closely.

Success Stories

Every day, our hospice agencies receive recognition for the care they have provided to a patient or someone’s loved one. Many tell us they don't have the words to describe their appreciation and simply say "Thanks." Below are comments and letters from patients and family members sharing their gratitude.


“I am continually impressed by the quality care that Heartland Hospice provides. When I call upon them I know they will arrive in a timely manner, and spend the time with patients and families to assure all needs are addressed; but most importantly I know when I discharge my patients with Heartland Hospice they are in good hands. The passion and professionalism of the Heartland Hospice nurses and other providers is extraordinary. They are a true example of what a hospice should be!"

-Kristin Starr, Palliative APRN, St. Joseph Medical Center, Kansas City, MO


“On behalf of my family, I wanted to say thank you for all that you and your staff did for us while my aunt was a patient of Heartland. Your team definitely showed that they are a shining jewel in the crown of Heartland Hospice.”

-Family member of hospice patient, Baltimore, MD


“Six months ago, Andrea walked through my door and my life was forever changed. I was so frightened to know that hospice would now be taking care of my dad.”

-Family member of hospice patient, Northern Virginia

Volunteering

At Heartland, we consider our involvement with patients a sacred opportunity and a privilege to be in their lives. We depend on our hospice volunteers to help us provide the love, respect and care our patients and their families need.

Our volunteers help enrich the lives of our patients by:

  • Running errands for patients and families.
  • Staying with patients so family members can get a much-needed rest.
  • Reading or providing a comforting touch.
  • Playing or singing soothing music to patients.
  • Keeping vigil with patients in their final hours.
  • Helping with office support tasks at the agency.
