If you or a loved one need hospice care in the Holland, MI area, we can help. Interim HealthCare of Norton Shores is a locally owned and operated provider with a brand recognized for over 50 years of outstanding patient service.

Our local team of nurses, aides, therapists, social workers, and staff are active members of our community who are committed to the families living in it. Several times a year, we participate in events supporting local worthwhile causes. We also maintain a strong network of local resources for the families of patients through our bereavement program. Our commitment to the families we serve extends well beyond the end of their loved one’s life.

Understanding Hospice Care

Many of our patients and their family members are experiencing this end of life process directly for the first time. If this is the case for you, we understand how confusing and overwhelming it can be to learn what hospice is and what it entails. Here's a few things you should know:

  • First, though a doctor may well recommend hospice, patients and families can and should ask their doctor if the time has come. For whatever reason, doctors may be waiting for a sign or a direct question from family members. You can ask for a Hospice Eligibility Evaluation at any time.
  • Hospice care is for any patient deemed to be at risk of dying within six months. You do not need to be actively dying now.
  • Hospice does not hasten death. The ultimate goal of hospice is to provide in-home services that allow patients and their families to have the greatest quality of life all the way to the end.
