Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care at the end of life, Hospice care involves a team-oriented approach of expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support specifically tailored to the patient’s wishes. Emotional and spiritual support is also extended to the family and loved ones. Generally, this care is provided in the patient’s home or in a home-like setting operated by a Hospice program. Health care professionals who specialize in Hospice and Palliative Care work closely with staff and volunteers to address all the symptoms of illness, with the aim of promoting comfort and dignity.

The Lavender Experience
Among the most precious of life’s experiences is that mysterious, magical moment when one slips from earthly life into eternal life. That moment is so precious that those present at the time of transition often experience an inner desire to be a part of something deeper. They long for a ritual, or often feel that there should be more happening than just silently standing, saying good-bye and just allowing the moments to pass.
Enter “The Lavender Experience”. Lake Superior Hospice, in seeking to be sensitive to the hearts of all involved, sets aside for each patient a “Lavender box” filled with opportunities guaranteed to touch the hearts of everyone present at that precious moment.

NMU Hockey Meet & Greet at Jacobetti – Sponsored by Lake Superior Hospice
MARQUETTE — Veterans in Marquette spent some time on Saturday with a bit of a younger generation: the NMU Wildcat Hockey Team. They spent time getting to know the veterans at the D.J. Jacobetti Home for Veterans.
The players autographed their season schedules for the veterans and talked about things ranging from hockey to living in Marquette to fighting in wars.
“It was pretty cool to talk to a couple of them and just see where they came from, their roots,” said Team Captain Justin Florek. “I talked to a couple people who said they played hockey back in the ’40s, and it’s just really cool that they love hockey. They come to our games every now and then, and it’s really special to be here for them.”
Lake Superior Hospice helped organize the event.
