Hospice Care at Wellspring
Every day has purpose
“We wish we would have called you sooner...”
It’s something we hear often from people who have lost a loved one. Hospice care is not about the number of days a person has left on this earth; rather, it’s about ensuring the quality of those days. We want this time for you and your loved ones to be filled with comfort, peace and an incredible amount of love. Even if you think you aren’t ready for this step, we encourage you to reach out and talk with someone who can answer your questions, and help you determine what is best for you and your family.
You have a choice when it comes to who is caring for you and your loved one at this stage of life. It’s important for you to make a list of things that are important to you, and find the right fit for you.
At Wellspring, we believe every day has purpose. God has ordained each and every day, and we want to help you live out those days doing the things that are important to you.
Our team approach includes a full range of services, including medical, nursing, pharmaceutical, social and spiritual support.
And our caregivers are compassionate listeners who honor the fact that you know your loved one. They want to be your advocate, confidant and friend. Caring for someone you love is one of the hardest (and most rewarding) things you will ever have the opportunity to do. We want to make sure that your time is spent making memories, while we support you through the rest.

Ray Ramsay has spent the last 17 years serving families in hospice care. For the last six years, he's put that experience to use at Wellspring.
Ray visits Dick and Sandy Bauer in Saginaw once a week for three hours. Dick is receiving Wellspring hospice care and Sandy is a passionate caregiver for her husband. When Ray visits once a week it allows Sandy to get out and run errands and attend appointments she may have.
“It‘s the comfort of knowing someone is here while I am gone, it takes such a burden off my shoulders and it makes those three hours more enjoyable than I can possibly tell you,” says Sandy.
“How can you not be blessed by helping other people. Part of why I do it is because as long as God gives me strength, I need to share that with other people,” says Randy.
“He asks nothing and he gives so much in return.” – Sandy Bauer
