Lake Bluff Concours d'Elegance of Southwest Michigan donates it's proceeds each year to a selected charity and we are proud to continue to support Hospice at Home.
Hospice at Home
Hospice at Home is a non-profit hospice that provides quality care to people adjusting to living with a serious illness, as well as to people facing death, anticipating the death of a loved one, or healing their grief after the death of a loved one. Extending that care, the Hanson Hospice Center is a home-away-from-home for patients at the end of life and their loved ones. Patients and families are made as comfortable as possible so they can focus on what’s important – spending quality time together. Services are provided to patients and their families regardless of the patients’ diagnosis, treatment choices, or ability to pay. Proceeds from the Concours d’Elegance go toward ensuring that this wonderful facility is open to all who need it.
The Hanson Hospice Center is a home-away-from-home for patients at the end of life and their loved ones. It is located in Stevensville, Michigan, in a beautiful, natural setting that allows people to focus on their time together, and friends and families are welcome 24/7. The building was designed so that every window takes advantage of the beautiful natural views.
The Hanson Center has 16 private suites with pull-out furniture and kitchenettes. Family is encouraged to visit at any time, and spend the night if they wish to do so. Each room was designed from the perspective of the head of the bed. The windows are large and allow a view from the ground all the way up to the sky. The beds are German-engineered and have a sliding foot-end. This allows for greater mobility for the person and more personalized care by family or caregivers. Loved ones will be able to sit on the slide out section and be closer to the person in the bed.
Each wing of 8 beds has a Family Room – a flexible space with frosted glass that can allow privacy when needed with the doors closed. Guests are welcome to use them for family dinners, relaxing, or just spending time together. Each room is stocked with games and toys that were gifts from the community.
Every detail of the Hanson Hospice Center was carefully considered and every effort was made to make it feel like a home, rather than a facility. The ultimate goal is to make patients and their families comfortable so they can spend their time and energy on what matters – each other.
This beautiful and peaceful Reflection Room is for prayer, meditation, and quiet contemplation. The contents of the room are flexible and will accommodate many different religions and different types of services. An oxygen hookup is included in one of the walls so patients may spend as much time as they like in this room without having to bring their tanks with them.
In order to create a meaningful experience specific to the residence, the low table has a place where people can write down their thoughts and add them to the vessel in the center. The stained glass artwork was donated by a family in honor of a loved one.
Two screened-in porches and six patios are large enough to accommodate beds or wheelchairs so people can enjoy time outside.
A boardwalk connected to the walking path that surrounds the property leads to a beautiful pavilion overlooking the ravine. This is also large enough for beds or wheelchairs.
