Hospice Care

Comfort and Care in the Last Phase of Life

MidMichigan Home Care supports terminally ill individuals by providing comfort and care during the final months of life. Hospice provide 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.

MidMichigan Home Care offers both in-home care and a hospice house. Our hospice house is located in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, Woodland Hospice House, offers an alternative to in-home hospice care when individuals are no longer able or desire to remain in their own homes.
