The following comes to us from Susan Levine, Executive Director of Hospice of the Valley:

At Hospice of the Valley, the ways we serve our community continue to expand. We're excited to announce our Arizona Palliative Home Care program for people with a serious life-altering disease. We're also seeking volunteers for a variety of programs. Perhaps you'll see something in this month's eNews to consider for yourself or someone you know.

Arizona Palliative Home Care helps seriously ill patients

If you know someone struggling with a serious illness who is not yet a hospice patient, Arizona Palliative Home Care (APHC) can help. An evolution of Hospice of the Valley's Outreach program, AZPHC is a comprehensive medically-based program providing support and oversight to patients struggling with daily living and disease management. Services are provided at no out-of-pocket cost wherever the patient lives - at home, a group home, an assisted living or skilled nursing care facility. Read more.

Volunteer facilitators needed for New Song Center for Grieving Children

The New Song Center for Grieving Children, a program of Hospice of the Valley, needs volunteers to facilitate child/youth and family grief support groups. The next training begins Aug. 13 and runs through Aug. 20 at locations in Scottsdale and Phoenix. Click here for more information or call 480-951-8985.

Veterans sought to offer companionship to hospice patients

Hospice of the Valley is looking for military veterans who would like to provide companionship to other veterans who are patients. The HOV Salutes program provides special recognition and support to these patients. One out of every four dying Americans is a veteran. Help us honor their service. Free training offered. Call 602-636-6336.

A "Health Care Hero" finalist

Jean Marie Stockton, director of clinical services at Hospice of the Valley's West Clinical Office, has been named a finalist in the nursing category of the Phoenix Business Journal's Health Care Heroes contest. In October, Jean Marie will become the agency's longest-tenured employee. Read more about this inspiring hospice pioneer.

Video and booklet provide support to grieving teens

Hospice of the Valley's "Teen Grief" video, now posted on YouTube, provides solace to teens who have lost a family member or friend. The video is part of an educational booklet and DVD that addresses the unique challenges teens face in coping with grief. Watch the video and learn more about ordering the DVD kit. Find more information posted under the video.

Thank you for helping us share the many ways Hospice of the Valley serves our community.
