Hospice and Palliative Care
Facing a serious illness is often devastating for the patient and his/her family. It is frequently confusing to find the necessary assistance to keep the patient living at home.
The Palliative Care Center offers inpatient care when remaining at home is no longer viable. Patients in our home-like, private rooms receive specialized palliative care, including pain and symptom management, massage therapy, therapeutic music, relaxation therapy, psychosocial care and hospice care when desired. Individual quality of life is at the core of the Palliative Care Center’s mission.
The staff of Valley Health Services’ Palliative Care Center can assist the patient and family in locating community services able to provide the necessary care and equipment required to maintain an independent lifestyle at home as long as possible. Our staff can coordinate these services assisting the patient and family in achieving the desired quality of life.
