It’s overwhelming to find out that you or someone you love has only a short time left to live. Hospice care helps make that time as comfortable and full of life as possible.
Since 1994, we have been helping patients and their families not only physically, but also physiologically, emotionally and spiritually. We will be there with the appropriate medication controlling the pain when needed, and a sunny disposition that will make you smile. Our hospice patients and their families very quickly become part of our family and, like we would our own family, we treat them with compassion, respect and dignity.
“Research published in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management found that terminally-ill patients who received hospice care lived on average 29 days longer than those who did not opt for hospice near the end of life" (Source: National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization).

The Myers Family
Several months before making the decision to end dialysis, Esther shared with her family that – should she ever need hospice care – ProMedica Hospice would be her choice. Esther's family and ProMedica Hospice staff became close during treatment, and this relationship provided Esther with comfort and support at this important point in her life.

In Our Home
Sometimes, hospice patients need special care managing their symptoms. Or sometimes, caregivers need to take care of their own medical issue. Sometimes patients decide they do not want to die at home. ProMedica Hospice offers our patients and their families’ access to our free-standing hospice facility on the campus of ProMedica Flower Hospital – Ebeid Hospice Residence.
In Your Home
Hospice is more than a place – it’s a philosophy of care. We can provide our compassionate, patient-centered care anywhere you call home – whether it’s a private residence, assisted living or nursing facility. We will help and support you and your family and friends so you can live your life as fully and comfortably as possible.
Our support services are available to patients, their families and the community we serve. We know that the dying and bereavement process brings questions and challenges. Our services are customized for you.
