Guardian Angel Hospice was founded in 2002 by a group of hospice professionals with a conviction that North Central Indiana deserved a higher level of hospice care, and that they could deliver it. These “Founding Angels” resolved to run their organization based on five values: Professionalism, Teamwork, Stewardship, Integrity, and Service.
It is the people and the relationships that make this organization work. We continue to be locally owned and operated by dedicated members of the community. Our owners are available on a daily basis to answer questions or address concerns. All calls are answered by a member of our staff 24 hours a day.
Guardian Angel Hospice can help you extend the services available to your residents and their families.
For example, this e-library website is full of caregiving information. It’s part of our unique commitment to educate residents, families, and professional caregivers about issues that arise during serious illness.

24/7 resources to make education easy Print out these articles and give them to your staff. Feel free to print them for residents and families also. We know you juggle a lot. This is our way of contributing as a team to provide the best care possible. (Ask us about inservice options.)
Here are other ways we can work together as a team:
You become a resource for our patients and families
Part of the hospice benefit involves periodic respite for family caregivers. It’s hard to watch a relative struggle with a serious illness. And many patients have caregiving spouses dealing with their own health challenges. Medicare will pay for several days of placement so families can get needed respite.
If you find yourself realizing that you would not be surprised if a particular resident were to die in 6 months, give us a call at 800.338.4043. This is usually the first flag that a hospice evaluation is a good idea.
