We are actively seeking persons who have served in the United States Military to provide companionship and support to fellow vets now on hospice. Vet-to-vet support is unique and cannot be mimicked by one who has not served. We do our best, but we know we need your help. We know our veteran patients deserve the camaraderie that only another vet can offer. We will guide you on how to support a person at the end of life. In turn, you will give your comforting presence to another. You may visit and you may sit in silence.

We also offer our veteran patients the We Honor Veterans pinning ceremony. This is a brief but meaningful ceremony and we welcome the presence and input of veterans.

If you are a veteran of the United States Military and can spare a few hours per month, please join us.

Mission Statement

We aspire to be the leading provider of hospice services for people in Michigan and Illinois with a life-limiting illness. We are committed to equipping our highly trained and dedicated employees with all of the resources necessary to provide extraordinary care and service. Residential Hospice provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and practical care for people in the last phases of a life-limiting illness, with an emphasis on control of pain and other symptoms. The program is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying, making it possible for them to remain independent for as long as possible in familiar surroundings. Hospice care is centered on both the patient and family/caregivers. Hospice personnel respect and respond without discrimination, to the unique differences in patients and family/caregivers and their lifestyle, values, and wishes.

Description

Residential Hospice provides a team of specially-trained professionals and volunteers to provide care, comfort, support and dignity to patients and families when their illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments.

Residential Hospice brings better care home to patients and families by offering them individualized care plans, developed with their physicians and carried out in familiar surroundings with compassion, dignity and support.

As part of the Residential Home Health family of companies, Residential Hospice is ready to provide expert medical care, emotional comfort, spiritual support and pain management to meet the needs of each patient.

Residential Hospice’s objective is caring, not curing, helping patients and their families focus their energy on the things that matter most.
