I was referred to Angela Hospice by my doctor. I was grieving the loss of multiple people in my life. Through individual counseling and group support, I learned to find acceptance and peace. I did not have to worry how I would pay for this help because there was no cost to me. I am grateful for this caring and compassionate resource in our community.
I've used Angela Hospice twice, once in 1999 for my mother who suffered from early onset Alzheimer's disease and again in 2016 for my father who died of cancer. I couldn't possibly put in to words how caring, helpful & calming their team, both in the care center & home care, were on both occasions. They're very good at assessing a family's strengths and letting them do as much or little as they're comfortable with & filling in the rest. When my mom was in the care center in Livonia, Mi, Donna~a volunteer said "get some rest, I'll sit with her" when I said "I couldn't ask you to do that" Donna responded "it would be my privilege." Not that it's her job, but her privilege. All these years later that remark, made off-handed I'm sure, still brings me peace. That's why I love Angela Hospice.
Our family will always give thanks and praise to the staff/volunteers of Angela Hospice for the care and compassion given our entire family during the seven months of hospice my mother was given at your care facility.
We should all be so fortunate to have these people in our lives.
They offer free one-on-one greif counseling. I started going there about 2 years ago to see Rebecca DeRaub. She has been amazing! She's so kind and understanding. I'm so glad I found Angela Hospice. It has helped me heal after the loss of my brother.
My husband received home care from Angela Hospice for the last two months of his life. We couldn't have been more impressed by every aspect of this organization - from the initial presentation at the hospital, to the nurses who were available at all hours to answer questions, to my husband's nurse and social worker who visited him at home. My husband was wary of starting hospice care, but after the early visits he looked forward to them and knew that they were helping him live the best life he could. I will be forever grateful for the amazing care he received from Angela.
Angela Hospice was founded by the Felician Sisters. The Sisters believe in compassion, respect for human dignity, solidarity with the poor, transformation, justice and peace. These values reflect the generous work of the Angela Hospice staff and volunteers. They are a truly caring group of people, and experts in their field!
Martha was very unprofessional. Was not measuring fluid intake of my father was in her hospice care. She had no regard that my father was being over medicated and under hydrated. Martha just said "he will die when his body is ready". She should have said, "your father is going to die of lack of hydration, starvation, and acidosis from over medication." Angela Hospice, or at least this nurse, was very uncaring and not completely fulfilling my fathers request to stay hydrated.
My mother-in-law was treated lovingly as the end of her life. The staff treated her like she was their family.
I had three very close family members cared for by Angela Hopsice at the end of their lives. One was at home, one was in a nearby facility, and one was in the care center. I can say that while all three experiences were very different, all three were given professional, and loving care by the Angela Hospice team. Family members were cared for, guided, and informed during the most challenging of life experiences. The mission of Angela Hospice of providing comprehensive, compassionate, and Christlike care was and is certainly exemplified in the hearts and actions of the staff and volunteers!
