Why Donate?

How Your Donations Support Hospice

Your donations support the following areas of Hospice

Bereavement

At Hospice of Lenawee, we follow our families for at least thirteen months after the death of their loved one.

We do this through individual counseling, group support, special events and ongoing groups. In addition, we provide Community Grief Support at no cost.

Hospice Heart Endowment Fund

Although Hospice Costs are usually covered, there are times when someone is not eligible for coverage. In that event, we continue to provide our compassionate care with little or no cost to our patients and their families.

Your donation to the Hospice Heart Fund helps us assure that everone is covered.

Home Care

Our Home Care Team takes care of an average of 125-150 patients per day. We do this through a team approach that includes the patient’s family in the plan of care.

Our amazing team includes case managers, social workers, hospital aides, spiritual care team, bereavement, admissions, education, and volunteers.

Operations

Hospice of Lenawee is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with no affiliation to any health care system.
