Learning that a loved one has been diagnosed with a serious illness is nothing short of overwhelming. Undoubtedly, your initial concern focuses on your loved one's health. How is dad feeling? What are his options for treatment? Are there side affects to the treatment? What types of support will he need?
Knowing where to turn for answers to your questions and additional sources of support can be confusing. With so much on your mind, let Hospice of the Valley help.
We offer the Transitions program at no charge to enhance the quality of life for adults, children and their families who are facing a serious illness. Transitions offers emotional support, education on living with a serious illness and overall coordination to help you and your family find and utilize community resources and navigate the healthcare system.
During an individualized assessment, the Transitions program coordinator meets with you in person to better understand your needs and develop your own unique care plan. We offer a range of assistance such as coordinating your transportation, finding caregivers and respite for family members, and help with completing Advanced HealthCare Directives. In addition, the Transitions team offers an array of complementary and in-home services through the Hospice of the Valley volunteer team, including art, massage therapy, Reiki, Pet Companions, music, aromatherapy, help with meal preparation and so much more.
Coping with a serious illness requires compassion and personal attention. Turn to the Transitions program at Hospice of the Valley for the support you need along the way. For more information about our Transitions program, call us at 408.559.5610.
The Transitions Program helped our family to realize we were not alone and that people really did care about us. Utilizing the program offerings provided a calming effect for us in an otherwise difficult situation and we could feel the love and support from each volunteer who supported us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Delores R.
