What makes so many West Michigan families choose Emmanuel Hospice?It’s the Emmanuel Hospice Difference.
To us, it starts with shifting the focus to how people want to live in the time they have available. Many studies show people who choose hospice often live longer and have higher quality of life than those who choose aggressive medical interventions.
Making Joyful Memories
At Emmanuel Hospice, we ask every patient, “How do you want to live?”
We’ve helped people go on a romantic date with their spouse, write and record love songs, spend the day at a golf course, go fishing and hunting with family members, visit the lakeshore, see their son’s handiwork, and enjoy time with horses like they did as a child. We believe in creating joyful memories for patients and their loved ones.
