How Hospice works
All proceeds benefit Hospice of the Valley and its mission to provide compassionate, interdisciplinary care for terminally ill patients.
The comprehensive home care for those with a life-limiting illness and a support system for their families are provided by a team of physicians, nurses, social workers, home-health aides, chaplains and volunteers.
In its program, Hospice pays for anything related to the terminal illness, including medications, equipment in the home, hospital stays and in-home hospice care.
For information on Hospice of the Valley, its services or the Mardi Gras event, contact Liz McGarry, director of development at Hospice, at (330) 788-1992 or (800) 640-5180.
