Southwest Iowa residents who need 24-hour care in the last days of their lives can rest assured that their needs will be met at Hospice With Heart.
Hospice is a special form of comfort care for people at the end of their lives. To be eligible for hospice care, a doctor must certify that a person has no more than six months to live and the person can not be treated for their ailment. It is the only Medicare benefit that includes pharmaceuticals, medical equipment and access to comfort care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
