Hudson Headwaters Pathways

Pathways is Hudson Headwaters’ integrated, supportive care service line that includes our Homeward Bound, Palliative Care and Nursing Home programs. Pathways focuses on quality of life in every setting. We encourage meaningful wellness visits and discussions about goals of care. We see patients at home, in assisted living and nursing homes to help make sure your health care choices match what’s important to you.

Pathways Services Availability

Pathways provides options to navigate whatever life brings. Pathways Homeward Bound visits are currently available within the southern Hudson Headwaters service area ending at Schroon Lake. Pathways Palliative Care is available in-person and via telehealth (depending on location), and Pathways Nursing Home care is available at select nursing homes and rehabilitation centers.

Contact your provider or a Pathways coordinator for more information.

Who benefits from advance care planning?

Advance care planning (ACP) is for anyone 18 and older. You don’t have to be ill or facing a life-threatening health condition to begin the discussion about your goals of care. Capturing your wishes allows you to document specific details about what makes sense for you. You can revisit your plan at any time to make sure that it reflects your preferences.

Where do I find more information or get started?

Contact your Hudson Headwaters primary care provider to start the conversation. They will connect you with a skilled team of providers, care managers and coordinators who can provide you with forms, answer questions and even help navigate conversations with your family.
