Company Profile
Hospice of Michigan provides specialized health care services for people with a terminal illness and support for their loved ones. These services focus on comfort measures and pain control, or palliative care. Palliative care is directed by the patient and family along with the patient's physician or hospice medical director. Nurses, social workers, home health aides, spiritual advisors and trained volunteers work as an expert team to provide palliative care. The team focuses on providing comfort and pain relief when a cure is not possible. The goal is to help each person live as fully as possible and to help the family and loved ones participate in the person's care.

What I liked about the service is that it had such a comprehensive collection of jobs! I was using a number of sites previously and this took up so much time, but in joining EmploymentCrossing, I was able to stop going from site to site and was able to find everything I needed on EmploymentCrossing.
