Hospice Month at McGregor- Peace and Comfort

McGregor’s Hospice team celebrates Hospice Month with our special kind of caring.

McGregor’s commitment to “providing the highest quality of life by ensuring comfort, dignity and tranquility — no matter where the patient resides or calls home,” means off campus hospice services are also part of its mission. Someone doesn’t even have to be in a McGregor facility to receive McGregor Hospice, referring to its description as “a special kind of caring.”

McGregor Hospice celebrates 11 years and has been gently adapting its services and programs to fit the times, communities it serves and influencing perspectives on hospice. Hospice services are available as part of the organization’s continuum of care and are offered to residents on its main 45-acre Cleveland campus in independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing care and long-term care facilities.

McGregor Bridge program is for those not yet eligible for hospice. McGregor Bridge is an alternative for people with life-threatening diseases who aren’t quite ready for the hospice level of care. In the Bridge program, people may pursue curative treatments for their disease and will have team support in identifying what they need to focus on, for example education related to disease progression and advanced directives.

In keeping with McGregor’s belief of a “boutique style hospice,” McGregor Bridge and social workers can help individuals connect with someone who can assist not just with health issues, but with financial and legal concerns, as well.

McGregor Hospice has been honored for its end-of-life services by Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP), an independent, nonprofit accrediting body for home and community-based health care organizations.
