The Valley Hospice was established through a long standing collaboration of the Valley Hospice Society (Foundation) and the Nova Scotia Health Authority. The hospice will provide a palliative approach to care for patients whose palliative care needs cannot be met at home and who don’t require care in a hospital.
Inside the Valley Hospice you will find 10 private patient rooms, each with their own bathroom facilities and patio doors leading to a private terrace overlooking a peaceful wooded area. There is a large open common space and a kitchen area where patients and families can gather. All patient rooms have pull out sleep furnishings so families can stay overnight.
Patients will have 24 hour, 7 days/week nursing care with dedicated physician support. Onsite services such as social work and spiritual care are also available to support patients and their families. The costs of health care services usually covered in home settings are covered at Valley Hospice.
