Why Hospice Care Matters
Hospice provides clinical management of pain and other symptoms to allow individuals to live as fully as possible. Hospice staff members provide care in patients' residences, whether they live at home, at a friend or family member's home, nursing facility, an assisted living center or a foster care home. According to the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, research has shown that Medicare beneficiaries that opted for hospice care as opposed to other medical interventions when faced with a terminal illness lived, on average, 29 days longer than those who did not receive hospice care.
Your Gift Provides Comfort
MidMichigan Home Care offers both home hospice care and a hospice house. Our hospice house, Woodland Hospice House, is located in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan and offers an alternative to home hospice care when individuals are no longer able or desire to remain in their own homes.
Your Gift Makes a Difference
In 2020, over $109,000 was used to support hospice patients in need who otherwise could not have afforded their care.
Are You Able To Help Again?
The need for hospice care continues in our region and you are invited to join us in supporting hospice services to every patient who wants it. One hundred percent of your gift will be used to directly offset the cost of hospice care for patients seeking hospice services in their homes or in our Woodland Hospice House who otherwise cannot afford it.
