For over 35 years, Harbor Hospice has provided compassionate end of life care for terminally ill patients and their families, addressing medical, emotional and spiritual needs without regard to ability to pay. Our team of professionals and volunteers connect patients and families to needed resources to meet their goals of comfort and improved quality of life. Through well-established relationships with community health care providers, Harbor Hospice brings the services and assistance that patients need right to the bedside. Harbor Hospice provides hospice care to residents in the five-county area of West Michigan who have received a terminal diagnosis.
If care at home becomes too difficult, patients can still receive expert hospice care in skilled nursing homes or at the Poppen Hospice Residence. The Leila and Cyrus Poppen Hospice Residence exemplifies the unique vision of Harbor Hospice providing people with the opportunity to live out their journey – on their terms – with the help of our expertise. The Poppen Hospice Residence serves people who are terminally ill and in the final stages of life, when providing care at home is no longer the best option.
Harbor Hospice also offers grief support to families and our community. Harbor Hospice provides a variety of supportive services for those who are grieving after the death of a loved one. Licensed professionals offer individual and group counseling to support families as they cope with their loss. Mailings and phone calls are also available to educate and ease the adjustment to a new normal. Grief support services are free of charge and available to anyone in the community through The Bob & Merle Scolnik Healing Center. Seeking help is a sign of strength; we are here to help when you need us.
Harbor Hospice is accredited by the Joint Commission and certified by Medicare, Medicaid and covered by most health insurance plans.
