Heartland Hospice serving North Central Illinois and Southern Wisconsin received the T-Mobile Hometown Hero Award from 94.9 WDKB.
Megan, a resident in the Rockford community, nominated Heartland Hospice. She shared: “This group of nurses, certified nursing assistants, nurse practitioners, therapists, chaplain and social workers provide awe-inspiring care each and every day for the patients and families they care for. They are dedicated to those they serve by making a difference in their day when life matters the most. Whether it be through a warm hand to offer compassion at a visit, the singing of a song to lift their spirits or helping a patient get dressed and ready to feel a bit more like themselves. These hospice heroes make more of an impact than I believe they truly know. Being a healthcare provider over the last year through this COVID pandemic has not been an easy job. The bravery, resilience and compassion that the Heartland Hospice care team has exhibited, especially during the past year, is more than commendable. They are truly earth’s angels walking among us.”
