"During our time with Lake Superior Hospice they helped us deal with every possible emotion. I cannot explain to you what it is like to watch someone you love take their last breath. Hospice brought peace and comfort during and after that life changing experience. They truly are compassionate to the loved one and everyone involved. Their kind words, personal touch and care is overwhelming. I want to thank Lynn, Peggy, Mary Ellen, and Sarah who brought so much comfort to me during a sad time in my life. I will never forget your presence and it reinforces that there truly are angels on earth. God Bless You."
"I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking such great care of my hero, my Uncle John. It gave me peace of mind to know that my nanna had so much help from your staff, and to know that my uncle was taken care of. Thank you so much."
"Calling hospice is not giving up… it is the opposite. For my wife it meant a high quality of life and care from loving, committed, and thoughtful professionals. I am forever grateful."
"Thank you to all the special people that took care of my grandma. She was happy when you came to see her. We all love you."
"Words are inadequate to express our deep appreciation for the wonderful compassionate care our mother recieved from Lake Superior Hospice. You are all angels on earth. Mom died in comfort and with dignity. God bless you all."
Kind of Care
“Every year, more than 1.65 million people living with a life-limiting illness receive care from hospice and palliative care providers in this country,” said J. Donald Schumacher, president and CEO of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. “These highly-trained professionals don’t only provide quality medical care. They work to make sure patients and families find dignity, respect, and love during life’s most difficult journey.”
Hospice is more than traditional healthcare. Hospice and palliative care programs provide pain management, symptom control, psychosocial support, and spiritual care to patients and their families when a cure is not possible. Hospice and palliative care combines the highest level of quality medical care with the emotional and spiritual support that families need most when facing the end of life.
Hospice care is available to people of all ages, with any illness. Hospice professionals and trained volunteers will ask you what’s important and listen to what you say. They make your wishes a priority.
