Jeff Thompson, Director

 

While we were caring for my husband Nolan at home during the last stages of his illness, we often needed supplies quickly. We would call Heart of Hastings Hospice and the response was immediate and compassionate. 'Hospice' was like a life line during that period of turmoil and grief as we strove to care for Nolan and make him comfortable. My family and I will always be grateful for that kindness. It was such a comfort to know that if we needed help, Hospice was there. What a wonderful support Hospice provides to families who are experiencing the impending loss of a loved one.
