There’s a difference between a for-profit and non-profit faith-based hospice. Angela takes their values including dignity and respect for their patients and families seriously!

I am privileged to serve on the Board of Angela Hospice. This organization puts patient care and their mission of providing compassionate, Christ-like care to all who need it as the top priority. Their facility is beyond compare: beautiful, state-of-the-art equipment and filled with compassionate and expert care givers. Many people do not understand how helpful hospice services are to the family of the loved one as well. My one message would be to contact Angela Hospice earlier rather than later to learn about all of the support that is available. Even if you do not use Angela's hospice services, you can take advantage of superior grief counseling after the loss of your loved one. Can't say enough good things about this organization.

I am a volunteer at Angela Hospice. It has been one of the most meaningful experiences of my life. The people associated with AH are among the kindest you will find anywhere! And kindness & compassion are not easily found in today's world. I am blessed to be associated with them.

My sister and I called Angela Hospice when our mother's Ovariam cancer had progressed to the point where we knew her time was near. We called Angela hospice for a consultation at 4pm. The next day someone was out meeting us. Within hours of that meeting, they had my moms home set up with a bed and all things necessary to make my moms last weeks as comfortable as possible. Their compassion for our mother was very comforting to us as we knew she was in good hands. Upon her passing, which was at 10pm at night, we made one phone call to the hospice center, a nurse came out immediately and took care of all the other arrangements. Angela hospice made things a little easier for my sister and I as we were struggling with all the "what happens now" questions. With Angela hospice they explained everything that would happen in the last few weeks and helped us cope with it all. I will forever be grateful for them.

My mom and aunt were both Angela patients. They both had in-home care and then transitioned into the hospice center. Mom thought she was in heaven, harp music, chocolate chip cookies and caregivers that were earth angels. I was embraced by support, compassion and care. It will be my final stop

My dad was blessed during his short stay at the Angela Hospice Care Center. The care that not only he, but the whole family received was wonderful. We lost our mom just a few weeks before he entered hospice and our grief was pretty raw. The kindness shown by everyone at Angela Hospice will never be forgotten.

My husband was placed on hospice, and this wonderful company helped prepare me for the end of his life. he was placed in the facility for some respite care for myself. They took wonderful care of him there and helped he get him home where he would spend his last days. The staff, the great volunteers, were always helpful. After he passed, I went through their grief counseling which gave me a safe place to let my feeling out. I couldn't have done this alone. They make you feel special and loved and just the genuine caring they emit is heartfelt. Thank you for all you do!

My husband had been ill for years, I was his primary care giver. as the years rolled on I was getting older and weaker too. Earlier in this year my husband was getting real bad, kidney and heart failure. The doctors told us it was time to put him in hospice. it was so sad. Late April he was placed at home with Angela hospice. The people that work here are the absolute best! They helped us both along the road to death. Nurses came by, social workers came over, the ministry came over. But the best was the volunteer named Dennis, since was husband was ill for so long most of his friends stopped coming by. Dennis provided companionship for him. My husband enjoyed his visits and talks. made him feel like a regular guy! Then when I had to have hand surgery, the social worker worked with us so he could go into respite care and I could take some days to myself. He was only in there five nights, I came every night except one. They cared for him like he was at home still. Bathed him, fed him his favorites foods, what he could or would eat.He was comfortable and well cared for. He was nearing the end of his life and we had arranged for him to go to a Tigers ball game one last time. Angela Hospice knew what we were planning and helped us keep the secret. They arranged for transportation to Tiger Stadium. they changed him in his Tiger clothes. and gave us(his family) all the necessary things to care for him that day, wheel chair, oxygen, cather and bag with a cover to be discreet. Our family surprised him there and we spent a wonderful day celebrating his life and his love of the Detroit Tigers. on Fathers Day! After the game transportation took us back to our home and helped get him in the house. Sad to say that was his last night/day alive as he passed away before dawn the next morning. I will never forget the help of such passionate people in my life! They helped arranged everything for us. I still am going to their grief counseling groups which gives me helpful things to do as I live my life without the love of my life. KUDOS to Angela Hospice! The staff is the best!!!!

I was an employee at Angela Hospice and knew first hand what great care was provided to our patients. It was when I became the daughter of an Angela Hospice patient that truly drove home that point. Not only did our mom receive compassionate care, my siblings and I were equally the recipient of care and concern. We will be forever grateful.

Anglea Hospice was a tremendous help when my friend was dying from pancreatic cancer, both emotionally and physically. What a great group of people! Unfortunately(?), we are seeing how wonderful they are again as they help care for my brother who has glioblastoma. I would highly recommend them. They are a very special group of dedicated professionals.

I have the privilege of not only working here, but had a wonderful experience as my own mom was in our care. The people that work here are Angels on earth. While it is hard to have family in end of life care, my cousin,uncle and many friends have come to Angela Hospice as well. I cannot say enough wonderful things....it is the hardest time you can go through but dying with peace, dignity and the care that they give eases the burden. Thank you for the work that you do!

I have had the amazing chance to be a part of the Angela Hospice volunteer team since around March of this year! I absolutely love my hospice family (All of the nurses and CENAs I get to work with) and I commend them immensely for the amazing care that they provide every single patient. I am blessed to be a part of something that brings so much peace to so many patients and their families. I simply cannot say enough about Angela.

Their kind and compassionate care allowed me to be a family member instead of a care giver during my family member's last days. The attention to small details was a sign of their compassion.

Both my mother-in-law and step-mother were patients of Angela Hospice. Both started in the home care program and one came to the Care Center for her last day.
We found the staff to be knowledgeable, compassionate and professional. We couldn’t have hoped for better care for those we loved so dearly.

Angela Hospice was there for us when our brother needed care. They provided care not only for him, but for us too. And, they still stay in contact with us.
Superb caring company. I would hope that anyone considering hospice care, whether in home or outside the home, contact these people.

Angela Hospice provided loving and exceptional care for both of my parents. With the help of their wonderful nurses and caregivers, both of my parents were able to remain at home in their final days. The emotional support that was extended to our family helped tremendously. The nurses took the time to sit with us, enjoy a cup of coffee and listen as we shared family stories and memories. They carefully explained the end of life process so we understood what was happening and what we could expect every step of the way. It is such a blessing to be able to look back on those profoundly difficult days with peace in my heart.

I experienced hospice care with 5 family members over a period of 14 months. Four of those were with Angela Hospice. I've worked with them in all settings. At another facility, at home, and at the Angela facility. They are truly angels. The staff is supportive and available 24/7 to answer questions or concerns. They provided comfort and care for my loved ones and also comfort and support for anyone in the extended family that wanted it. The best way I can communicate my support of what they do is to tell you that, if I ever find myself in the position of requiring hospice care, Angela Hospice is where I want to be. Thank you for all that you do.

My sister and I had our mother with Angela hospice. Except we did it at home. My sister and I took care of her, neither one of us nurses or in the medical field. We were very scared. Angela hospice was always there for us, coming to see us, taking phone calls in the middle of the night, or sending a nurse to the home in the middle of the night because we were panicked. They are professional, kind, caring and we were so blessed to have them help us to get our mother to the other side.

My Mother who passed from Stage IV Colon Cancer was an At Home patient of Angela Hospice. My sister and I took care of her. Angela Hospice far exceeded our expectations and the expectations of my family. They were there for us through every step of the process, including panicked 3am phone calls from my sister and I. They even sent nurses to the house in the middle of the night to help us if we could not handle a situation.

This organization is made up of the most compassionate people I have ever met. It is worthy of every cent that it receives from donations. We are so grateful to them for allowing us to deliver our Mother to heaven in peace and at home while we held her hand. I believe it is one of the greatest gifts we were ever able to give to her.

I have been receiving one-on-one grief counseling at Angela Hospice since July and could not be happier with the experience. Both individual and group therapy is available free of charge to members of the local community struggling with a loss. Their staff is compassionate and their facility is really lovely. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in Southeast Michigan. Thank you Angela Hospice!

7 years ago we welcomed Angela hospice into our home to help care for my father who was in the final stages of his life. The care and compassion that came from the wonderful staff is not something I will ever forget. They continue to communicate with my entire family to make sure there is nothing we need and continue to offer support.
