The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting for Heartland Hospice on Sept. 29 at the Chamber office, 425 W. Oglethorpe Highway in Hinesville.
Chamber CEO Leah Poole welcomed Heartland Hospice employees and community members to the event before Susan Richards of Heartland Hospice explained the services it provides.
Heartland Hospice is a provider of home health care, hospice care, skilled nursing, memory care and post-acute care. Account liaison Beth Lindbom joined the team after using the services during the passing of her grandfather.
“Hospice has such a negative stigma attached to it, so my primary goal is to educate the community on what Heartland Hospice really is,” said Lindbom. “We enrich lives, and we meet our patients wherever they’re at in life’s journey.”
Heartland Hospice provides bereavement services for family members as well as having an established memorial fund that is available to the community based on financial need. Liberty County is one of the communities in which it provides 24-hour on-call availability of local health-care teams.
Heartland Hospice also plans to branch out to some of the underserved communities in Georgia.
“There are a lot of rural areas in Georgia that a lot of clients do not have the resources or family support to get medical services,” said Lindbom.
Heartland Hospice’s office is located in Brunswick but serves 11 counties in southeast Georgia, including Liberty and Long.
