To Restore Honor, Dignity, and Respect to end of Life Services.
St. Marie’s Hospice has been serving diligently servicing as the tri- county area as a full service hospice. With deep roots in the Detroit community, our professional staff of physicians, registered nurses, LPNs, certified nursing assistants, social workers, musical therapists and chaplains are experts in end-of-life care, offering family and caregiver support, non-medical therapies and bereavement services.
We care for our patients wherever they reside. Our compassionate and generous volunteers offer companionship and support. Since we first began offering services to the community, we have specially trained our volunteers in hospice care. Our staff and volunteers alike approach each patient and family with the values we all hold dear - respect, dignity and a celebration of life. Our philosophy has always been to help patients remain independent for as long as possible. Our caregivers engage the patient and family to develop an individualized plan of care, with the Hospice team by the patient’s side for guidance, support and treatment.
Most of our patients receive hospice benefits under Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance. As a non-profit hospice, we have always cared for any patient who needs and wants our services; it is at the core of who we are. All patients who are eligible for hospice services may receive care from St. Marie’s Hospice.
