article-hero-image

Arden Courts of Glen Ellyn had a patient who was nearing end-of-life. Heartland Hospice serving Chicagoland Central was brought in to help support the patient. The patient’s wife promised her husband he would be able to pass at home and began to worry that she waited too long to bring him home. Arden Courts and Heartland Hospice set-up transportation with the local ambulance company and reassured his wife that he would be safely transported home. They also worked with the patient’s local hospice agency in Indiana to make sure his transfer went smoothly once he was home. They were both happy when he made it home safely to be together again for his last wish.
