Our highly experienced registered nurses will come to your home to evaluate, treat and educate you on your specific medical care needs and management A registered nurse is on call 24 hours per day 7 days a week. Home health care can be a less expensive and less stressful solution than an extended hospital or nursing home stay.

Any Contribution of Time
Schoolcraft Memorial HomeCare and Hospice is looking to enhance our Hospice Volunteer Program.
A little of your time can change a life! Please consider joining our team today.
We become very close to families in a short period of time. Families will often desire to give a tangible gift back to the hospice team to show their appreciation following the death of their loved one. As individuals, we cannot accept gifts or money, therefore a special fund was created for this as well as memorials we receive. Over the years the fund has been used to provide experiences for our patients and staff that might otherwise not have been affordable. Our hospice families have benefited from this fund as staff strive to be creative in supporting quality and enjoyment of life each day. Things like paying for travel expense so a child can return home to say goodbye; providing a salon appointment in the home; purchasing a holiday meal for a struggling family gathering for their last Christmas together; or purchasing specialized equipment to increase a person’s comfort are a few ways the fund has been used. It also enhances the ability of our staff: covering special training and conferences; purchasing bereavement and volunteer materials; and specialized tools to support work in the home. A donation to this fund can be made simply by clicking on the tab. And we continue to be grateful for the memorials we receive by mail as well.

5 out of 5 stars
The care that was provided by The nurses (Cindy, Felicia Ruth) and staff was exceptional. The entire staff was very friendly and made you feel welcome. We received a call from Felicia the next day to check on my husband to check his pain level and do a follow up. The surgery area from check in to check out was well organized, clean, and up to date. Thank you to all of you for what you do so well and everything beyond your normal duties.
