Get to Know Us
We invite you to learn more about our mission here at Mother Teresa House.
End-of-Life Care Home in Mid Michigan
Our terminally ill guests are best served in a home environment. Mother Teresa House is not a facility, but a simple family home where we can care for up to three guests at a time.
Where All Are Welcome
All are welcome at Mother Teresa House. Guests of any religious, social, or economic status are warmly welcome and their family and friends also find welcome. Priority is given to those in greatest need.
To Find Comfort
Mother Teresa House caregivers volunteer their time and joyfully care for our guests as an expression of God’s love.
Each person is a child of God. We revere their dignity as he or she lives out their last days with us.
“You must make your home a center of burning love, the sunshine of God’s love must be in your home first.” – Mother Teresa
At Mother Teresa House, all are welcome. No matter the religious, social, or economic background of our guests, we treat everyone with the same level of care and respect. Our mission is to provide comfort and care to the terminally ill in a warm, welcoming environment. Mother Teresa House caregivers volunteer their time and joyfully care for our guests as an expression of God’s love. Our guests are remembered daily in our prayers – and for guests who want it, staff will pray with them according to the guest’s practice. Each person is a child of God, and we revere their dignity as he or she lives out their last days with us.
You are not alone
Guests are never alone at Mother Teresa House as there is always someone with them or nearby. Our guests never have to suffer alone. This goes for their family members too.
Support and families
Having a loved one go through a terminal illness can be stressful, and grieving a gradual loss can be painful. Mother Teresa House lifts a burden by providing the necessary 24/7 care and a supportive presence.
Partnership with the community
Mother Teresa House works closely with all local hospitals and medical hospice agencies in providing care for their guests. Many local businesses, corporations, churches, and service organizations partner with Mother Teresa House. Mother Teresa House also supports internships for students from various colleges and universities.
Beyond the local community, Mother Teresa House has assisted leaders from numerous other cities who have developed similar homes.
