The Merlin and Carolyn Hanson Hospice Center ­is complete! The center’s experienced hospice caregivers and volunteers are providing compassionate and comprehensive hospice residence services to southwest Michigan hospice patients who need a place to go for their end of life care: a home-away-from-home.

The Need

The Merlin and Carolyn Hanson Hospice Center helps our neighbors, friends, and family members answer questions such as “Who will care for me now?” and “Where will I go?” The specialized care at the hospice residence meets the needs of those who don’t have a caregiver, whose caregivers are too frail themselves, or those who do not want to die at home. 

Each of the 16 patient suites can accommodate family members to stay overnight. Natural views, private patio areas, and quiet spaces indoors help foster companionship and comfort among patients and visitors.
