James River Hospice

  • 5 people are interested

James River Hospice is a home-hospice agency based in southside Richmond built on an inter-disciplinary, holistic model of patient care. We strive to meet every one of our patients' needs, whether they are medical, social, spiritual, or emotional.

A good haircut is not often thought of as being an essential part of patient care, but a new hairdo can bring with it an energy and outlook very few other experiences can provide. Similarly, for many of our patients having their nails done is something that has not been available to them for a very long time. The chance to feel refreshed, to see themselves in a new light, and to restore their personal care routines is an immeasurable boost to our patients' spirits.

If you would like to bring your talents as a hairdresser, barber, or nail artist to hospice care, please contact James River Hospice today!

Mission Statement

To knowledgeably and compassionately meet the needs of our clients and their families by listening, planning, and delivering individualized home care of the highest quality.


Our proprietor, Shane Maley, has been providing medical equipment services for patients for over twenty years, and realized a progression for more complete care coordination and better quality of life by employing skilled services for area patients diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). JRHH was incorporated in July 2013 for this purpose and began to see steady and healthy growth due to our exceptional patient care. For years we have enjoyed a great reputation with our patients and the area medical community through hard work and a drive to help all our clients to the best of our abilities.
