For more than 40 years, Hospice of Michigan has provided comprehensive and compassionate end-of-life services for patients and families in 46 counties throughout the Lower Peninsula.
As the pre-eminent not-for-profit hospice provider in the state, Hospice of Michigan serves more than 5,000 patients and their families annually to ensure a seamless continuum of palliative and quality end-of-life services. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for our patients and families. Hospice of Michigan serves patients and families where ever they call home whether it's in a home, in a hospital, an assisted living facility, or nursing home - ensuring quality of life, comfort, and peace for our patients and providing support for their loved ones during their end-of-life experience.
Our Open Access program allows Hospice of Michigan to deliver expert, compassionate care to patients of any age, no matter their diagnoses, complexity of care, place of residence or ability to pay, including grief support services to help families cope with their loss and caregiver education and support. While Medicare, Medicaid and most insurance providers recognize the value of our services and cover its cost, there are still those who are not eligible for these benefits, or are uninsured or underinsured. The generosity of our donors helps us maintain our commitment to serve everyone in our communities who needs and seeks our care.
In 2017, Hospice of Michigan joined Arbor Hospice as founding members of the NorthStar Care Community, a collaboration of end-of-life programs and services to preserve and promote the mission of not-for-profit hospice. Among the programs and services of the NorthStar Care Community are community-based palliative care through NorthStar Palliative Care, perinatal and pediatric care through the Jo Elyn Nyman Anchors Programs for Children and education programs for physicians and health care professionals through the NorthStar Institute.
