Valley Hospice
 

Valley Hospice provides care at home or in a homelike setting to persons who are terminally ill. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death but affirms life, emphasizing quality through symptom control provided by an interdisciplinary team. Hospice empowers patients to live their lives to the end with dignity and comfort while involving families and loved ones in providing care.

The Hospice Care Team

At Valley Hospice, the patient’s personal physician consults with our interdisciplinary team consisting of a physician medical director, nurses, social workers, chaplains, home health aides and volunteers. Working closely together with compassion and clinical competence, team members attend to the patient and family as the “unit of care.”

The care team can also include specialized clinicians in the areas of oncology, cardiology, IV therapy, enterstomal therapy, rehabilitation and psychiatric home care. Our nutritionist visits patients and counsels them when there is a need. Our pharmacist attends weekly team meetings and acts as a resource in developing a plan of care for our patients. Other services include holistic nursing, doula program, telehospice, pet therapy and art therapy.

Eligibility

The hospice care patient should reside within Bergen or Passaic counties.

When at all possible, the patient should have a primary caregiver who can be a family member, friend or paid companion. If this is not possible, our social workers will intervene to help the patient plan for future needs.
