You have a choice! Not all hospices are the same. Not all hospices can meet you and your families specific needs. Hospice care can be very specialized in how the services are provided and what programs are in place.
For over 30 years we have been providing our community with comfort care and support. We believe that hospice care is about making life moments happen and that with our support you live your best life, every day, with dignity, in comfort and have a supportive team to aid both you and your family during this journey. We are your friends and neighbors, not just a supportive staff.
Did you know....There are statistics to support that the sooner you get on hospice care the longer you live.
Did you know....You can graduate from hospice care. This means that you are discharged from hospice services because your health has become stable, you are comfortable, you have a plan in place so that the day to day services of hospice are no longer needed.
- We work with your physicians, the ones you have selected, used and have a relationship with in lieu of assigning a new one.
- We have a We Honor Veteran's Program that allows us to honor and meet the unique needs of veterans and their families with dignity, and specialized support, as they approach their end of life journey.
- We provide free, open to the community (Antrim, Charlevoix, Emmet and Otsego Counties) Grief and Bereavement support to anyone suffering a loss of any kind. So, you do not have to have had hospice services, and the loss can be for example due to a deployement, loss of a job or a pet. Not just the death of a relative or friend. This can be done at a place of employment, in a group setting or though various other venues.

We support the philosophy and practice of Hospice Care and serve as a resource for end-of-life care in our community.
