Finding purpose and joy


“Little did I know when I started at Henry Ford Hospice years ago that my team would become like a family to me. I not only have the satisfaction of helping others, but I also have a great team that shares my compassion and quality care for patients and their families.”

Michelle Bussineau, MSW, Hospice Social Worker


“I have worked with Henry Ford Hospice for more than 10 years, and it has truly been a great experience. I love keeping families smiling no matter what they may be going through. I have cried and laughed with families, and I go home knowing I did my job well.”

Yvette Hunt, Hospice Coordinator


“Caregiving is hard work for families. It’s a 24/7 job with no breaks and little sleep. When Hospice provides the care, families can make their last days together meaningful, even joyful. Hospice Home has celebrated weddings and birthdays, seen estranged families reunite, and welcomed visits from patients’ beloved pets. We encourage families to find joy together.”

Melissa Doser, Nurse Practitioner, Henry Ford Hospice Home – Jackson



“I love the holistic team approach for patients facing the end of life. I enjoy educating and empowering caregivers and seeing them care for their loved ones with confidence. My patients and families have taught me what is truly important in life and have shown me what gratefulness looks like, even in very difficult circumstances.”

Deann Sturdivant, RN, Hospice
