Hospice of Michigan provides specialized health care services for people who are living with a terminal illness as well as services and support for their loved ones. These services, commonly referred to as palliative care, focus on comfort measures and symptom management.
Palliative care is directed by the patient and family, in concert with the patient’s physician or hospice medical director. Nurses, social workers, hospice aides, spiritual care advisors and trained volunteers work as an expert team to provide care. The team focuses on providing comfort and pain relief when a cure is not possible. The goal is to help each person live as fully as possible and to help the family and loved ones participate in the person’s care.
Hospice of Michigan, a leader in end-of-life care, has career opportunities at all skill levels. Because our work impacts the quality of life of people who are ill and those who love them, we seek special employees who are technically skilled, possess superior interpersonal skills, and wish to enthusiastically contribute to our culture of caring.
One hallmark of hospice is its interdisciplinary approach to delivering care. The unique skills of each team member – physician, nurse, social worker, spiritual care giver, home health aide and volunteer – are vital to the high-quality care that we provide to our patients and families. Hospice of Michigan is also dedicated to providing grief support, training and education to the communities we serve.
