Open Arms Hospice program works diligently to assist our clients in managing diagnosis related symptoms to have the utmost dignified process of dying at their place of residence, where the family legacy can be passed onto the next generation. Our care aims to capture, body, mind, and spirit caring for the patient and the immediate family. Open Arms Hospice has a team, comprised of nurses, home health aides, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers. We thrive to provide the patient with all of the physicians prescribed medication to address symptoms related to the end of life diagnosis.
Where are we?
Our services are available in Oakland, Wayne, and Livingston counties. We provide at home care, assisted living facilities, or skilled nursing facilities - we come where the patient is.
Who Qualifies for Hospice Care?
Anyone with cancer, advanced heart or lung disease, end-stage Alzheimers or demetia, or another life-limiting illness may qualify for hospice services. A registered nurse is available, if needed, to determine if a hospice referral is appropriate.
How is Hospice Care Paid For?
Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans pay for hospice services. For in-home care, room and board is the responsibility of the patient and family. If you have questions about your hospice insurance benefits, please call us at 248-979-5572.
