About Sparrow Hospice

Sparrow Hospice provides quality, compassionate care to help relieve physical, mental, and spiritual pain to people of any age with life-limiting illness.

  • Hospice is a service of care taking place in a patient's home, nursing, assisted living or residential care facility, or hospice residence.
  • It provides hope to individuals and families, stabilizing a patient's medical care and condition while addressing other needs.
  • Hospice focuses on providing comfort, dignity, and emotional support for patients and their families, loved ones, and caregivers.
  • Hospice works closely with patients' primary care physicians and reinforces those relationships.
  • Coverage is available through Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance plans. Sparrow Hospice will provide care to all terminally ill patients regardless of their ability to pay.
  • It is a patient's decision to determine which hospice program suits their needs.
  • Hospice care becomes appropriate at the time of terminal prognosis, regardless of the patient's physical condition.
  • Patients may reinstate traditional care at any time for any reason.

The Sparrow Hospice staff and volunteers help patients reclaim the spirit of life and bring hope to the last chapter of life. For more information about Sparrow Hospice, please visit
