Home Hospice Care
Home Hospice Care allows Patients to be in comfortable surroundings during the final days of their life. Home services provide pain management and symptom relief medication. They offer the families of Patients support and train others to provide care. This valuable resource can help alleviate unnecessary stress during difficult transitions. Sparrow Hospice Services offers multiple ways to donate to Home Care, with three designated funds. To make a online donation to any of these Hospice funds, please click here.

Hospice Rooftop Garden
Upon arrival, you immediately sense the difference at Sparrow Hospice House of Michigan; it doesn't look or feel like a hospital. It's filled with open space and each private room is recessed with its own individual address; just like a real home. Lanterns resembling streetlights are mounted on the walls, and the rooms feature oak doors and furniture, not hospital equipment. Before the Hospice Rooftop Garden, if residents wanted fresh air, they had a difficult journey to the main door, and even then, had the opportunity to view the sidewalk or the parking lot. Caroline's Rooftop Garden at Hospice House of Mid-Michigan has changed all that. The rooftop garden is a beautiful serene space that residents can easily access to enjoy the beautiful outdoors in a safe and peaceful environment.
