Description

Many people hear the word "hospice" and associate it with giving up hope. Yet, giving up hope is not what Hospice at Home is about. Instead, it is one of the most hope-filled organizations in Southwest Michigan.

If you, or someone you care for, have a life-limiting, debilitating disease, serious illness or injury, Hospice at Home is here to help you make your every living and loving moments count. It is our goal is to give you, your loved one or your patient, the best quality of life possible through a range of holistic programs:

  • Transitions Service to help you and your family cope as your serious illness or disease progresses.
  • Palliative care to help you manage symptoms of a life-limiting illness and relieve the pain.
  • Hospice care provides comfort, dignity and compassion when you, or someone you care for, is terminally ill. It is a holistic, non-curative approach to care dedicated to enhancing your life during your remaining days. Your hospice team will work with your attending physician and the Hospice at Home medical director to provide physical symptom and pain management. The team will also meet your emotional, social and spiritual care needs as well as your family's needs. This care is available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year round from offices in Buchanan, St. Joseph and South Haven, Michigan. And because of the generosity of donors, you will never be denied hospice care for financial reasons or an inability to pay.
  • Bereavement support through monthly mailings, special programs and Lory's Place, children and adults receive the help they need along their grief journeys.
