How to Begin
We offer a few different ways for patients and families to begin services with us
Contact your doctor and ask him if hospice care is the right direction for you or your loved ones.
Call or e-mail us and we can get in contact with your doctor and discuss if it is time for hospice care. If it’s determined that it is the right time, we can work with you on getting any necessary paper work started.
We offer an “info-share”, where a member of our staff will meet with you and your loved ones and teach you about hospice care and what Lake Superior Hospice can offer. We inform you on how it can be beneficial for the patient and the family, answer any questions you may have, and show you how you can get started.
To get started or for more information about hospice care and to schedule an Info-Share – contact us at (906) 225-7760 or e-mail us at email@example.com.
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.
If you or a loved one is facing a serious or life-limiting illness, the time to find out more about hospice and palliative care is right now.
