Pathways is Hudson Headwater’s integrated, supportive care service line delivering care through our Homeward Bound, Palliative Care, Nursing Home, and PACE (coming in 2023) programs. These programs provide direct care and resources to patients and their caregivers as they age. The Pathways care team works together across all programs to give our patients easy access to different types of care throughout all stages of life. Homeward Bound is currently available within the southern Hudson Headwaters service area ending at Schroon Lake. Palliative Care is available in-person and via telehealth depending on location. Contact your provider or one of our coordinators for more information.

Pathways to Advance Care Planning

Pathways to Life Planning can help you establish your wishes to guide your loved ones and healthcare team.

  • Discuss goals of care
  • We can assist with:
    • Health Care Proxy – the person who makes choices for you when you cannot. If you do not name a health care proxy, states generally have rules about how families can make care decisions for you.
    • Living Will – spells out your decisions for treatments and life-sustaining measures such as mechanical breathing (respiration and ventilation), tube feeding, or resuscitation.
    • MOLST – (Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment) outlines important medical decisions for people with serious illness or frailty, such as advanced heart or lung disease.

Who is advance care planning for?

Advance care planning is for anyone 18 and older. You don’t have to be ill or facing a life-threatening health condition to begin planning. You may also document specific details for the approach you prefer and can revisit your plan at any time to make sure that it reflects your current 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.
