“Valley Hospice is not just about providing exceptional medical care, it is about nurturing the spirit. We are so happy that our community will now have the Valley Hospice where staff, friends and family will walk with the patients as they take their final journey,” said Martha Stewart, Valley Hospice Foundation, Board Chair. “We are so thankful for the community’s support for this project.”

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.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
