The Valley Hospice is a welcoming place where compassionate care is provided when end-of-life is near. Care and support is provided to residents and their families around the clock.
The Hospice is not a place for dying, but a place where you live your last days. It is a place of both sadness and laughter, and of community where last days are met with support and compassion by a team of professional care providers and volunteers.
JANET NESS: A MEMORY SHARED WHILE HIKING FOR VALLEY HOSPICE
Long-time Valley Hospice Foundation supporter, Janet Ness first became involved in Hospice through her work with the VON Annapolis Valley, where she met Valley Hospice Foundation Coordinator, Dale Sanford.
Success for our Hospice has been described as providing a positive end of life experience for patients and families/loved ones.
The Valley Hospice Foundation raises funds to support various non-medical programs and services.
The Valley Hospice Foundation began in response to a community need to offer Valley residents – who for any reason are unable to die at home – and their loved ones a welcoming, quiet and comfortable alternative to hospital-based palliative care.
We believe that the spiritual, cultural and emotional aspects of care at the end-of-life are best served in a peaceful and home like place that has access to nature.
The new 10 bedroom Hospice residence is located in a wooded area on a site near Valley Regional Hospital. It sits on a knoll with the trees between it and Brooklyn Street in Kentville NS.
