More Breaking News!

We recently purchased a home in the Burton Area, and are working towards opening our first compassionate care home.  It will be called the Lavigne Home in appreciation for the gifts that made this possible.  Our board and volunteers will be renovating the home, recruiting a director and staff, and continuing to seek community involvement.

 

 

2nd Bowling Fundraiser Friday, Dec 8, 2023

We are contacting area hospice providers to again fill B’s Bowling in Flint (off Center Road).  Last year was a huge success, and many groups used this as an opportunity for holiday team building.  This will be a fun filled night with some exciting updates on our progress and how you can be involved.

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.

The Problem

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.

The Solution

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.
