Valley Hospice welcomes NSCC Practical Nursing students to explore their interest in working in palliative care. Their experience also results in them becoming ambassadors for Valley Hospice helping to raise awareness of the valuable and unique services it provides.
In August 2021, June’s daughters supported her decision to move to the Hospice. Everyone wanted what was best for June and, “we felt from the beginning that the Hospice was a five-star facility”. “We loved the suite where Mom lived, we liked that we could stay there with Mom for as long as we wanted, and we appreciated the chef coming by each day to ask Mom what she wanted to eat. We had total confidence in everyone who worked at the Hospice”. “Perhaps the best thing of all” commented Susan, “was that we didn’t have to be Mom’s caregivers anymore, we were freed to be her daughters”
Hospice is a philosophy of care that not only eases patient’s pain and symptoms but attends to their emotional and spiritual needs as well as those of their loved ones.
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.
Valley Hospice Foundation supports palliative care in all care settings.
