Woodland Hospice does not charge the client or family for any services, medication, equipment, or supplies. If insurance is available for the client, hospice bills the insurance company directly and accepts reimbursement as payment in full. If no insurance is available, we provide the same services at no cost to the client or family. This service is possible through insurance reimbursements and the generous support of the community by way of memorials, donations, and fundraisers. Clients who move to the hospice house may have a room and board fee for some of the days of care there. Call the Woodland Hospice office for more information about Hospice House.(989)773-6137.
Hospice Home Care:
Caring for people with an incurable illness in the warmth and comfort of their own home is the heart of our care and philosophy. Services are available to the patient, caregiver, and family. Woodland Hospice also contracts with several local nursing homes and Adult Foster Care Homes and can provide complete hospice services in any setting.
Hospice Inpatient Care:
Typically, the staff of Woodland Hospice can manage any symptom or procedure in the home. However, we recognize that some patients are more comfortable or feel more secure in a facility setting, and we continue our care at Hospice House or in the hospital.
Caregivers may need a break at times to attend to other areas in their lives. Woodland Hospice offers highly trained volunteers for short term respite care as well as a variety of other supportive services. In the case of longer term respite needs, a five day respite stay at Hospice House is available.
