Caring for a loved one can be both rewarding and challenging. At Heartford, we understand the importance of providing support not only to patients but also to their dedicated caregivers. Our Caregiver Support Group is a safe and nurturing space where caregivers can come together to share experiences, find solace, and gain valuable resources.
Join our virtual Caregiver Support Group the third Tuesday of each month at 6pm.
Five Wishes is a living will (also called an advance directive) that talks about your personal, emotional, and spiritual needs as well as your medical wishes. It lets you choose the person you want to make health care decisions for you if you are not able to make them for yourself.

Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST) is a medical order that helps give people with serious illness more control over their care during a medical emergency. POLST can help make sure you get the care you want, and also protect you from getting medical treatments you DO NOT want.
