SEASONS HOSPICE OPENS NEW HOSPICE INPATIENT CENTER IN HENRY FORD WYANDOTTE HOSPITAL

Wyandotte, Michigan, Aug. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care is proud to announce the opening of our new inpatient center on the 5th floor of Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital at 2333 Biddle Avenue in Wyandotte. This new inpatient care center is designed to offer a calm and comforting environment for hospice patients who have acute needs.

Hospice care is typically provided in the comfort of the patient’s home or place of residence. However, in some cases pain or symptoms cannot be adequately managed in the home setting. In these cases the patient may benefit from a short-term stay at the Seasons Hospice Inpatient Center where our expert teams can help provide advanced care to ease acute symptoms. The new inpatient center offers a uniquely serene and comfortable environment where families can visit with their loved ones while Seasons helps to bring their symptoms and pain under control. The center features twelve rooms, each furnished with comfortable décor and views of the Detroit River.

“Seasons considered the comfort of both our patients and their families to be of the utmost importance when opening our new Wyandotte unit.” Said Denise Lalka, Executive Director of Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care of Michigan. “Our goal was to have the center feel as much like ‘home’ as possible for our patients and their families.”

Seasons is proud to enter this community partnership with Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital. “Our community will benefit from the advanced inpatient hospice care that Seasons will be providing.” Said Denise Brooks-Williams, president and CEO of Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital. “Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital aims to be a hospital that can serve the needs of the entire community and our partnership with Seasons ensures that we can offer exactly that.”

The inpatient center opens today, August 2nd, 2017.

Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care services include:

  • Spiritual care programs to meet the needs of patients and loved ones.
  • Namaste Care, which improves quality of life through activities that stimulate the senses, promote relaxation, and offer comfort and serenity.
  • Board Certified Music Therapists that harness the power of music to reduce anxiety and pain while connecting people to some of their happiest memories.
