For many people, a promise made must be a promise that’s kept. This was true for Royce Chenore. He made a promise to care for his dad and Hospice of the Calumet Area helped him fulfill that promise.

He turned to Hospice of the Calumet Area for their expertise in end-of-life care and the support that would enable him to care for his father in his apartment.

“Hospice of the Calumet Area was there for me, providing anything we needed to help Dad and our family,” he said. “Within an hour after we first called them, they brought a hospital bed, medications and all the things we needed.”

Like Royce, many people choose to care for their loved ones in the place they cherish most – the comfort of home. Hospice of the Calumet Area makes that possible. Their family-centered approach to care includes a team of professionals comprised of doctors, registered nurses, social workers, counselors and trained volunteers. The team works together to provide expert medical care to manage pain and symptoms for the patient as well as compassionate emotional and spiritual support for the patient and family.

Being the primary caregiver for a loved one with a serious or life-limiting illness is challenging. However, as Royce discovered, you don’t have to do it alone.

“They were so responsive to my needs. I could call them and within 20 or 30 minutes, they would have somebody there, if need be. If I had a question, they would answer it immediately or have someone contact me,” he said. “They gave me peace of mind.”

“We ensure you’ll have the caregiving support you need so you can be a spouse, daughter or son again, cherishing every moment with your loved one,” said Adrianne May, Executive Director of Hospice of the Calumet Area.

Hospice is about more – more options for care and support, more control over the choices you make, more opportunities to spend meaningful moments together. Contact Hospice of the Calumet Area for the expert care and support we can provide for you and your loved ones.
