"Philosophy of Care" - Setting Us Apart from Other Hospice
and Palliative Care Programs
a noticeable difference in our care. Hospice programs are the 'shining
star' of the health care community. However, providing hospice and palliative
care services can vary as much as hospitals, physicians, and other professional
services. Our programs go beyond the standards of certification to provide
exemplary care from our staff and unique programs to support the varying
needs of patients, caregivers and families. The best choice is to choose
a Medicare-certified and licensed hospice and palliative care program
for the comprehensive benefits that are offered.
our integrative Valor PatientCaretm
program, our "Philosophy of Care" focuses on going beyond
the standards to provide specialized programs tailored to the individual
needs of our patients and their loved ones. From special care programs for many diagnosis, to cultural programs, we are here to serve the special needs of every patient.
Specialized Cultural & Religious Programs
Our Jewish Program respects the dignity of life, and provides services that are rooted in an understanding and appreciation of Judaism and Jewish life. Our professional team has been educated in the relighious traditions and culture of Judaism and the Jewish people. As the only hospice in Arizona owned by a member of the Jewish faith, familiarity with the unique needs and concerns of Jewish patients and their familes, ensures that we are appreciative of the diversity of Jewish expression within the community
Latinos are less likely to use hospice than many other groups, although there is evidence that their need for services may actually be greater. Valor HospiceCare provides special programs for the Latino population, with many educational services to support hospice eligibility, care provisions, cultural sensitivities and bereavement/grief counseling. Many of our clinicians, including Physicians and Nurse Pracitioners, speak Spanish and come from a Latino heritage.
Specialized Clinical Programs
Cardiac (including CHF)
Our special program for heart conditions, including congestive heart failure (CHF) is provided by specially trained clinicians. As one of the top three hospice diagnosis, and in partnership with area heart physicians, care is provided with special weight, dietary and medication methods to ensure the highest quality of care.
Dementia (including Alzheimers)
Valor HospiceCare's dementia program is provided for patients and their caregivers. Dementia is the fifth-leading cause of death in the U.S. among 65 or older, and presents very special challenges to providers. Many patients on hospice also have a degree of dementia, in addition to their other life-limiting diagnosis. Our special dementia program uses innovative methods by highly trained clinicians to ensure exemplary patient care and quality of life for patients and their caregivers.
Valor HospiceCare's wound and ostomy program provides clinical and consultative services to patients and their caregivers in their homes. This service is provided by a certified wound, ostomy and continence nurse, or a nurse who is extensively trained in specialty wound care. A plan of care is provided for patients with altered skin integrity due to pressure necrosis or drainage, including skin breakdown and acute/chronic wounds.
