Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A new project is being launched in Marquette County that gives those who are considering hospice care for a loved one or for themselves another option to consider.
Dr. Dan Mazzuchi, President, and Stacie Kucera, Treasurer of the Board of Directors of Trillium House joined The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike this week to discuss the effort.
According to Mazzuchi and Kucera, hospice care focuses on allowing the patient to live the end of life in the most compassionate and caring way possible, which usually involves in staying at home.
That may not always be an option for everybody, so The Trillium House is being created as an inpatient hospice care facility for those who could use it.
They explained that the plan is in the very early stages, but they are moving forward with the effort and they are working to get the word out.
Lake Superior Hospice CEO Carol Carr and UP Home Health & Hospice CEO Jeff Nyquist joined the show to also put their agencies support behind the effort.
They both indicated that while for many, in-home care is the best but that may not be possible so the next best thing is in-patient care.
