Mission Statement

T he Mission of Augusta Health Hospice of the Shenandoah as a licensed hospice in the state of Virginia is to provide holistic care to patients and families with terminal medical conditions by having available a coordinated comprehensive scope of services that may include home care, respite care and bereavement. Dedicated volunteers are a very important component of this service.

Description

Life's final stages can be a time of comfort, growing, and sharing for families. Hospice care offers mental and spiritual preparation for death through palliative care, regardless of age, gender, nationality, race, religion, or the ability to pay.

We provide hospice care wherever it's needed - at home or in a nursing home - complete with training and support for family members and caregivers.

Augusta Health takes a team approach to hospice services, providing qualified professionals to address medical and psychosocial needs. Physicians, nurses, certified nursing assistants, social workers, physical, occupational and speech therapists, a dietitian, pharmacist, chaplain, and specially trained volunteers, as well as Care Home Medical and prescription services are standing by to help 24/7 during this difficult time.
