Portage Health Hospice presents “Medicare’s Best Kept Secret”

(Events) Permanent link   All Posts

Learn about a treatment choice that provides medications and medical equipment, on-call nurse availability 24 hours a day seven days a week all at no cost to you or your loved one, and in the comfort of your own home.

Attend one of two presentations by Portage Health Hospice on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 6 p.m. at GardenView Assisted Living & Memory Care in Calumet, or on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 6 p.m. at The Bluffs Senior Community in Houghton.

“Hospice is never an easy choice,” said Marianne Berghefer, hospice volunteer and bereavement coordinator. “Our goal is to help our patients control their terminal illness. No one can control when they die, but with hospice, we work with patients and families to control how.”

Both presentations are free to the public, and will include light refreshments. Any questions should be directed to Berghefer at (906) 483-1160. Learn more about Portage Health Hospice at portagehealth.org/hospice.
