From We Honor Veterans to our Lagniappe philosophy of care, Heart of Hospice has developed multiple specialty programs to ensure all patients and families we have the honor of serving get the best possible care.
Heart of Hospice has woven "a little something extra" into the fabric of our organization. We always strive to provide high-quality care completely individualized to the unique needs and desires of our patients and their loved ones. Read below to learn about our specialty services.
At Heart of Hospice, we are dedicated to serving those who have served our country. We participate in We Honor Veterans (WHV) at all our locations. Each agency has a dedicated WHV chairperson who is responsible for guiding the team through WHV requirements to better serve veterans and their families.

We understand the value of non-pharmacological ways of helping patients manage anxiety and pain. Our Lagniappe Customer Service Program encourages the Heart of Hospice clinical team to provide “lagniappe,” or a little something extra, for each patient at every visit. Lagniappe can be a small gesture, such as washing a few dishes, or a much larger one, like setting up an opportunity for a patient to go on a fishing trip or plane ride for the first time.
