Hospice

Hospice services are provided by UP Health System Home Care & Hospice. 

Hospice professionals provide the emotional, spiritual, and medical support needed when patients are facing the final stages of life. 

The goal is to help patients live comfortably, with dignity, when a cure is no longer possible. For many hospice patients, the familiarity of home offers a great sense of comfort and security. Hospice care can be provided in any place a patient calls home, including nursing homes and assisted living facilities. 

Hospice Care helps with:

  • Counseling and bereavement support services
  • Medical treatment to address symptoms, with special emphasis on controlling pain and discomfort
  • Maximizing quality, relationships, and experiences at the end of a patient's life
  • Specialized care for veterans
  • Dedicated volunteers for assistance and support

When you or someone you love is living with a terminal illness, quality of life matters more than ever. Our hospice care program can be provided in any place a patient calls home.
