About Us

Wings of Hope Hospice helps patients enjoy their last days, weeks or months in the embrace of loved ones and comfort of home. We help dying patients and their loved ones through the dying process. We increase the patient’s choice, control, comfort and dignity and provide the training and assistance his or her loved ones will need to provide care.

Our Mission:

We provide compassionate care at the end of life and support through the grief experience for individuals and families in Allegan County, Van Buren County and surrounding communities.

Our Vision:

We will increase the comfort level of our culture to embrace death and dying as a natural phase of life and to decrease fear and ignorance associated with that phase. We will strive to help people live more fully and benefit from the gift of their own mortality.
