Dr. Balfour Mount, the patron of Valley Hospice Foundation, explains that high-quality palliative care “enables a shift from preoccupation with suffering and anguish, to a growing acceptance of integrity, wholeness and inner peace.” These words hang on a plaque in the entrance of the hospice.

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.
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.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
The Valley Hospice Foundation relies on the generosity and kindness of individuals and organizations to raise funds for the Valley Hospice. In addition to the money raised third party events can raise the profile of the hospice and create new friends for the work of the Hospice.
