About Hospice of the Valley

Location:

1510 East Flower Street, Phoenix, AZ 85014, US

Mission Statement

Bringing Comfort and Dignity as Life Nears its End.

Description

Hospice of the Valley's mission focuses on caring. Hospice care treats the whole person, as well as nurturing the family. When a loved one has a life-limiting illness, the extended family also needs support. A team of professionals helps the patient stay pain-free, comfortable and fully engaged.

As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to serve our patients, their families and our agency in a variety of ways. The greatest volunteer need is to serve our patients in their homes or in one of our many inpatient units. Patient care volunteers provide in-home respite care ensuring that the patient is not alone while the caregiver takes a much needed break.. Volunteers also provide socialization, transportation and supportive assistance like running errands. Other opportunities for service include pet therapy, administrative support, thrift store associates, special events, fundraising and Ryan House pediatrics. Please visit www.hov.org and follow the volunteer tab to apply and see all of our opportunities.

Our volunteer training course is offered several times a year. The success of the volunteer program is dependent upon your ongoing commitment to our patients and the agency.
