Hospice of the Valley is the leading provider of hospice care, serving more than 18,500 patients and their families last year. Their care teams provide compassionate care in the comfort of home, relieving symptoms and addressing the patient’s medical, emotional and spiritual needs. As one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit hospices, Hospice of the Valley's mission has remained constant since being founded in 1977: comfort and dignity as life nears its end.
No one is ever turned away, regardless of insurance status or financial means. Their services go beyond hospice care, helping those with serious, chronic illness, as well as people at all stages of dementia. They assist those transitioning from hospital to home. Pediatric and perinatal programs support medically fragile children. Massage, aromatherapy, music and pet visits improve quality of life. Bilingual care teams serve Spanish speakers. Medical students are instructed on the facets of palliative care within the Hospice of the Valley system.
In addition, Hospice of the Valley offers no-cost community programs, such as grief support, senior placement services and help with living wills. They are the only hospice that offers 24/7 phone support with a nurse. It is their goal to support families every step of the way.
