Here’s the latest!

We  purchased a home in the Burton Area, and are working towards opening our first compassionate care home, hopefully around June.  It will be called the Lavigne Home in appreciation for the gifts that made this possible. 

The house itself has four bedrooms, and we are working at getting it up to speed.  Thanks to all those who have helped so far!  Special thanks to Home Depot for the flooring and volunteers!

Michelle and Todd had an interview on Channel 5 in Saginaw to get the word out.

On Monday May 20, we are presenting at the Flint Soup, in the hopes of sharing our mission! 

To support us through volunteerism, send us an email.

To contribute financially, check out our donation page for our wish lists, or how to give a one time or monthly gift.     

Our Board is in the process of hiring an executive director, in the hopes of opening in July. Contact Diane at dwelker.hospicehomes@gmail.com for information.

Our new site is still under development.  While we will keep this one as an organization, we will start another for the LaVigne Home.

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.
