Hospice Education and Support

End-of-life care resources for you and your family

Whether you are a hospice patient or a family member of a hospice patient, preparing for hospice care can be an overwhelming and emotional journey. Our Hospice team understands how important it is to have the right support and resources to help manage the emotions and caregiving responsibilities of end-of-life care.

All of our hospice patients and their families can use any of our support resources and services at any time during their hospice care.

Caregiving support

Caregivers play a vital role in assisting in the care of their loved one. Whether the caregiver is looking for nutrition information or how to complete an advance directive form, the information below can help. You can also reach out to your IDT for additional community resources. 

Bereavement support

Our bereavement support groups offer encouragement and comfort during the patient’s illness and following the loss of a loved one. Henry Ford Hospice support groups are also open to the community at large and anyone who is grieving the loss of a loved one.
