The time proceeding the end of life is difficult for most. Yet it is also a time when life’s journey is a source of peace and reflection. Hospice of Holland can guide you and your loved ones through this often confusing stage, providing comfort and assistance. Hospice of Holland care teams are trained and experienced in end-of-life care, as a result of cancer, congestive heart failure or natural passing. Your comfort is our top priority. We are exceptional at managing pain and other difficult symptoms resulting from any life-limiting illness. In fact, Hospice of Holland is the only organization of its kind with two Board Certified physicians on staff. Our goal is to add more life to every day.
Hospice of Holland has been named a 2014 Hospice Honors recipient for outstanding patient care and family satisfaction. This award is testimony to our commitment to the entire family, as well as keeping our care up to national standards. Learn more about this recognition.
End-of-life care is available for people of all ages. Patients become eligible for hospice care when they choose care focused on comfort rather than cure, and when the physician estimates the person’s life expectancy to be months rather than years. Through physical, emotional and spiritual care, we help patients feel comfortable, enhance their quality of life, and provide support when it’s needed most. Also, we provide non-hospice palliative care for those suffering in pain from trauma or serious illness.
Hospice of Holland alleviates the strain of caregiving by providing care directly in a patient’s home- whether that be their residence, an assisted living facility, a nursing home, or a hospital. Our service area includes Ottawa, Allegan, Kent, Van Buren and Muskegon counties.
