Get to Know Us
We invite you to learn more about our mission here at Mother Teresa House.
Hospice House, Lansing, MI
Our terminally ill guests are best served in a home environment. Mother Teresa House is not a facility, but a hospice house in 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.
Our guests are remembered daily in our prayers. For guests who want it, staff will pray with them according to the guest’s practice. “We need to pray—for prayer gives a clean heart and a clean heart can see God in each person. If we see God in others, naturally, we will love one another as God loves each one of us.” – Mother Teresa
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
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 FOR 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 including the University of Notre Dame, and several colleges at Michigan State University.
Beyond the local community, Mother Teresa House has assisted leaders from numerous other cities who have developed similar homes.
