Hospice Care

Hospice care encircles you and your family with comfort, pain management, honesty and respect for your decisions.

Valley View Village partners with specialized hospice care providers to bring physical, emotional and spiritual care for people with life-limiting illnesses and support for their loved ones. Your family can hand over the worries of daily physical care, allowing all of you to focus on this precious time together. The chaplains are available for prayer, Bible reading, guidance and fostering connections with God and family. Chaplains are always respectful of personal and cultural preferences.

Many wonderful volunteers offer their varied gifts for companionship and a calming presence to residents.

“My mom has been a resident for a year and is now in the memory care wing. It is so comforting to all of my family to know that she is in the caring hands of the the entire staff. Thanks to you all.”

—Deborah, daughter

Respite Care

When family caregivers need to be away, respite care is a trusted solution. A short-term stay with us includes a fully-furnished suite, all meals, tailored health services and access to the events and activities at Valley View Village.

For those who need a little more assistance following a hospital stay, respite care can provide the extra care needed to rest and recuperate for a successful return home. Therapy services are available.

Spiritual Care

Valley View Village offers many opportunities for a rich and full life, including spiritual care. Our staff chaplains are available for the spiritual needs of residents, families and staff. All are invited to non-denominational worship services. Bible studies and conversations with our chaplains are regularly scheduled and open to everyone.
