We open our hearts to all patients who are struggling with a serious illness.

We provide hospice services to those of any age, religion, race or illness. While Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance cover the cost of most hospice services, Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care provides care to all patients and their families regardless of their ability to pay.

Following are some of the services you have access to as a part of our hospice and palliative care:

Nursing Services

One of our specially–trained hospice nurses will make home visits to assess the patient’s condition. Emphasis is on the management of symptoms such as pain, nausea, vomiting and constipation. How often the nurse visits depends on the patient’s condition and the physician’s orders.

The hospice nurse is in regular contact with the patient’s physician and can help arrange for special equipment and supplies. A 24-hour emergency on-call service is provided for problems or questions regarding the patient’s condition that cannot wait until the regular office hours.

Social Work Services

Medical social workers are available to help with emotional support. The social worker visits every family initially to help determine strengths and needs. A plan is developed which can include:

  • Coordination of resources
  • Problem-solving
  • Personal adjustment counseling
  • Family counseling
  • Referral to other agencies for financial assistance and other help

Certified Nursing Assistants

The aides visit the home at regular intervals to give baths, shampoos and provide other types of personal care. They may also help make/change the bed and perform other homemaker services to maintain the cleanliness of the patient area.

Chaplain Services

As part of our holistic care, we provide spiritual support for patients and families when requested by the family. Coping with a serious illness may create questions concerning faith, meaning and hope. Many patients and families find it helpful to talk with our chaplains about religious or spiritual issues as they strive to cope with a serious illness. Please let us know how our chaplains can be of service to you. 

Support by Volunteers

Volunteers are available to assist the rest of our hospice team by helping the patient and family. If desired, a specially trained volunteer will be assigned to provide such services as companionship or respite for family members and occasional help with errands. Volunteers are good listeners and are available to offer emotional support.

Volunteers may be requested to provide the following:

  • Home visits for companionship or respite for caregivers
  • Facility visits for companionship
  • Running errands
  • Telephone calls for supportive listening

Bereavement Services

Hospice provides support to family members during the crucial year of transition following death. Support groups meet periodically, and family members may receive help from a follow-up volunteer who is specially trained in helping families cope with their loss.
