Patient services are provided without regard to race, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability (mental or physical), communicable disease, or place of national origin.

 

Routine Care

Routine care is general hospice care provided wherever the patient calls home. Routine hospice care includes pain and symptoms management and regular visits by Hospice of the Valleys team members.

  • Our team includes dedicated hospice physicians, visiting nurses, social workers, home health aides, spiritual care providers, bereavement counselors, dieticians, speech/physical/occupational therapists, and specially trained volunteers.
  • The team collaborates with the patient’s own physician, family members and caregivers to see that patient’s choices about care are respected and that comfort and quality of life is maximized.
  • Nurses on call 24/7 to answer questions or make emergency visits.
  • Durable medical equipment, medical supplies, medications, therapies, and wound care.

Respite Care

Respite care is available to give a needed break to family and caregivers. Care is usually provided in approved hospitals or long-term care facilities and can also be supported in a hospice inpatient unit. Respite care may extend to a maximum of 5 days in a row.

Continous Care

Continuous care is offered only during periods of crisis to maintain a patient at home. This level of care is appropriate when symptoms are not well controlled and the patient requires predominately nursing care to achieve palliation of symptoms.

  • Examples include: uncontrolled pain, dyspnea, nausea or vomiting, seizures, hemorrhaging or agitation
  • Care is provided in the patient’s place of residence for a minimum of eight hours of care
  • The need for Continuous Care is evaluated throughout the crisis and is discontinued once the crisis is resolved
  • A patient who is imminently dying doesn’t necessarily qualify for this care
