Here’s our recent article on the Four County Community Foundation (ccf.org) website.
Join us in creating a no-cost hospice home in Flint to care for those who are terminally ill and require 24 hour care.
Sunsets are proof that endings can be beautiful too.
National surveys have shown that if given a choice, most people would prefer to die at home, or in a home-like setting. Sadly most people die in sterile acute care facilities. For many families, in-home care is not an option. Most families do not have the skill or knowledge to care for a dying family member. Family members who are often separated by geography, do their best to care for their loved ones while juggling other responsibilities like children, jobs, and their own health challenges. The care of a terminally ill person is both physically and emotionally draining.
For-profit hospice facilities are often too expensive and bed space is limited in subsidized facilities. Tragically, in the final days of their lives, many people find themselves with no place to go.
Hospice Homes of Genesee and Lapeer Counties is working towards opening a non-medical hospice, “Guest House” in Genesee County. This facility will provide a private residential space at no cost to our guests. A home-like environment where guests and their families will receive care and support. We will not consider their ability to pay, and we will not seek reimbursement from any insurance provider, private or governmental.
