Mission Statement

Beacon Hospice is committed to providing comprehensive, competent, quality care optimizing comfort and dignity consistent with the patient and family needs and goals. With the patient's needs and goals as priorities, we seek to ensure without discrimination, the dignity, comfort, and choices of the patient/family/caregiver in timely, well-coordinated end-of-life care which includes bereavement and counseling support.


Beacon Hospice is dedicated to providing care and comfort to a terminally ill patient and their family. We provide the highest quality of care possible by employing a team of healthcare professionals to administer comfort and support.

Beacon Hospice strives to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs of patients and family members who share the emotional trauma of a terminal illness. Beacon Hospice is committed to educate the community and increase awareness of the hospice concept of care among medical professionals, lay persons, clergy and those in need of a compassionate approach to care.

Beacon Hospice admits patients without regard to race, religion, national origin, ancestry, marital status, disability, or sexual preference. The admission criteria does not deny admission or services to people with communicable diseases including, but not limited to HIV, MRSA, and Hepatitis B.

Beacon Hospice will provide services to the terminally ill in their home, wherever home may be. There are times when caring for a loved one at home is simply not possible. Beacon Hospice staff also provide care at many nursing facilities in Metro Detroit area.

I signed up as a companion volunteer in fall of 2021, and had a wonderful experience getting to know my patient. It turned out that she became a great friend, and I looked forward to our weekly visits much more than I thought I would. All I can say is if you're considering doing this, definitely do - you will not regret it. As a side note: one reviewer noted the office turnover. I did get the sense that they had some issues with an office manager awhile back, but the manager was replaced in the spring of 2022 and I have noticed a much better "vibe" in the office since then! Elizabeth who currently runs the volunteer group is truly an amazing person - she's great at what she does, and I promise you'll really enjoy working with her.

There appears to be a lot of turnover in the office positions. The headquarters, which are out of state, will not allow volunteers computer access, so only manual, repetitive tasks are available to do.
