Hospice Care

Since 1982, Blue Water Hospice has been at the heart of the hospice care in our community. Hospice is a program designed to provide comprehensive, holistic, end-of-life care. Patients and families facing a life-limiting illness receive services which focus on comfort measures and emotional support. Hospice provides physical care and expertise in pain and symptom control. In addition, it also addresses the emotional, social, psychological, and spiritual needs of the patient and family.

All services are provided under the direction of the attending physician and the hospice medical director. Hospice makes it possible for the patient and loved ones to spend final days together, surrounded by familiar sights and sounds. Afterward, we offer ongoing support for family and friends.

Blue Water Hospice offers care in-home or within a skilled nursing facility, as well as through the dedicated hospice home located in Marysville, MI.
