Hospice of Lenawee is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing compassionate patient and family-centered care to the people of our community during and after the last season of life.
Your donations may be designated to the following areas:
Hospice of Lenawee is able to provide grief and loss services to our community at no cost through grants and charitable gifts. The Kathy Goetz Endowment was established to ensure the legacy of our late and former Bereavement Director. This Endowment assists in covering the continuing costs of our community bereavement services
Although Hospice Costs are usually covered through the "Hospice Benefit" under Medicare, Medicaid or most private insurance, 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 is a way that you can help us assure that everyone is covered.
Our 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 and in the setting of where that patient calls home, including our 8-bed inpatient residence - our Hospice Home. A gift designated to the Hospice Home will help us to address a need in the Home, such as equipment, furniture, kitchen appliances, etc. Your thoughtfulness is often the reason why our patients and their families can truly feel at home during their stay with us.

Hospice of Lenawee would like to acknowledge that support through each circle that represents a donor's giving affinity. Each "Circle" is named after an individual(s) who faithfully served our mission through time, advocacy and resources. Whatever you decide, as a donor, is truly appreciated by this organization who serves and supports Lenawee and the surrounding community.
The "Doc" Annual Giving Circle will celebrate those who make a pledge to give annually and the importance of that commitment. Please join us by becoming a member of the "Doc" Annual Giving Circle.
