Mountain Valley Hospice seeks to make hospice care available to all appropriate patients and families in the geographic service area regardless of race, creed, gender, or ability to pay. In providing care to persons with a limited life expectancy, hospice neither attempts to prolong life nor to hasten death. The goal of hospice care is to alleviate symptoms – physical, emotional, spiritual, financial, social-enabling the patient and family to concentrate on living. The focus on patient perceived needs allows control to remain with the patient. Mountain Valley Hospice provides care that is palliative, holistic, and supportive. Included in our services is a hospice residence which includes 8 beds.
