Our Caregivers

The Valley View Hospice caregivers are the heart and soul of our hospice care. They are a team of skilled and compassionate professionals who provide personalized care and support to our patients and their families. Our caregivers include:

  • Doctors: Our doctors are experts in palliative medicine, which is the specialized care of people with serious illnesses. They work closely with the patient’s primary doctor and other specialists to manage pain and other symptoms and coordinate the overall care plan.
  • Nurses: Our nurses are specially trained in hospice and palliative care. They visit the patient regularly to monitor their condition, administer medications, provide wound care, and educate the patient and family about what to expect. They also communicate with the doctor and other team members to ensure the best care.
  • Social workers: Our social workers are licensed professionals who provide emotional and practical support to the patient and family. They help with coping skills, grief and loss, family dynamics, and community resources. They also assist with advance directives, funeral arrangements, and other end-of-life issues.
  • Chaplains: Our chaplains are spiritual counselors who offer comfort and guidance to patients and families, respecting their beliefs and values. They can provide prayer, meditation, rituals, or other spiritual practices, as well as connect the patient and family with their own faith community or clergy.
  • Volunteers: Our volunteers are caring individuals who give their time and talents to enhance our patients’ and families’ quality of life. Depending on the patient’s needs and preferences, they can provide companionship, respite, errands, pet therapy, music therapy, or other services.

Our caregivers work together as a team to provide holistic care that addresses each patient and family’s physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. They are available 24/7 to answer questions, address concerns, and provide support. They are committed to honoring the dignity and wishes of each patient and family and making their final days as comfortable and meaningful as possible.
