What if I’m not ready?

If you’ve said to yourself, “I’m not ready for hospice care, but I could use some help,” turn to the Transitions program of Hospice of the Valley. We know that coping with a serious illness requires expert care, compassion and personal attention. We can help now even if you are continuing to seek curative treatment.

Hospice of the Valley offers the Transitions program to enhance the quality of life for adults, children and their families who are facing a serious and possibly incurable illness. It’s an innovative approach to ensure your goals and wishes are fulfilled. The program is offered at no charge to anyone with a prognosis of one year or less and includes emotional support, education and practical assistance. Our goal is to help you and your family find and utilize community resources, navigate the healthcare system and have the support you need along the way.

We can help:

  • Access and coordinate community services and resources
  • Offer a break for family and caregivers
  • Provide complementary services, such as art therapy, massage, Reiki and pet companions
