Welcome to Valley Hospice

"You matter to the last moment of your life, and we will do all we can, not only to help you die peacefully, but to live until you die.” – Dame Cicely Saunders, Founder of the Modern Hospice Movement (Nurse, Social Worker, Physician, and Writer)

Valley Hospice is a not-for-profit, Joint Commission certified program, part of Valley Health System and a service of Valley Home Care. We have been serving the unique needs of terminally ill patients and their families for over 30 years in Bergen and Passaic counties. Our professional staff includes individuals that can speak various languages including: Spanish, Russian, Polish, Korean, Portuguese, French, and Italian, in addition to technology based interpreters for all languages.

Valley Hospice has relationships with most area nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and doctor’s offices.  Specifically, a partnership between Valley Hospice and Christian Health Care Center (CHCC) offers compassionate, around-the-clock pain and symptom management within a designated inpatient hospice unit at CHCC.
