St. Ann’s is committed to provide comfort and assistance to residents, and their families and friends, dealing with a terminal or life-limiting illness or condition leading to a decision that treatment is no longer effective. We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for those facing these end-of-life issues with dignity, compassion and peace.
Our interdisciplinary team provides palliative care and supports a resident’s choice of hospice care, embracing a holistic approach in our support of residents and families, which encompasses the mind, body and spirit. Together, we focus on educating and discussing choices that are available, offering options, and respecting decision.
St. Ann’s residents facing end of life decisions may select hospice care provided by area hospice care communities. Further, St. Ann’s is a founding partner in one of these area providers – Emmanuel Hospice – formed with three other Grand Rapids based senior health care facilities to create an exemplary spiritual and physical care hospice service.
