OUR SERVICES

Hospice care includes many services and support.  Please contact us if you do not see a service you feel is important for you and your family.

Heartsway Hospice takes great pride in the breadth and quality of our services.  Many loving stories from families we have cared for show our passion for your needs during this process.

HOME CARE

We strive to empower and enable individuals to remain in the familiar
surroundings of their own homes for as long as it is possible and appropriate.
Death with dignity at home is an important goal of hospice care and we will
support you in any way possible to care for your loved one in the familiar
surroundings of home.

CONTINUOUS HOME CARE        

Continuous care may be provided in the home when a short-term medical
crisis develops which the family in conjunction with the hospice team
cannot manage with intermittent support alone. Continuous care may
be recommended by the interdisciplinary team for short periods of
time (generally not to exceed 72 hours depending on the individual
circumstances). The hospice will coordinate and manage continuous home
care until the situation stabilizes or until alternative arrangements meeting
the needs of the patient/family have been made.

The care need not be continuous. The hospice must provide a minimum
of 8 hours of care during a 24-hour day. Hospice Aide services may be
provided to supplement the nursing care but at least half of the coverage
must be provided by licensed nursing personnel.

A medical crisis is defined as a period in which a patient requires
predominately nursing care to achieve palliation or management of acute
medical symptoms such as:
• Uncontrolled physical symptoms
• Imminent death
• Severe, uncontrolled pain
• Severe respiratory distress
• Physical deterioration with death appearing imminent (2-3 days)
• Seizures
• Intractable nausea/vomiting
• Hemorrhaging
• Suicidal ideation, gesture, or attempt
• Severe agitation or confused state that could cause self-injury
• Any other medical crisis as determined by the attending physician
or Medical Director
