committed to supporting excellence
in the delivery of hospice palliative care
and end of life services

The goal of end of life care
is the same regardless of setting:
to ensure the best possible
quality of life for clients

Welcome to our Blog
Our President, Ken Clarke, put up our first blog post, "Merry Christmas". We are looking for more blog entries in coming weeks!
We are collecting engaging articles, from our volunteers, staff and board members, to better explain the work which we do.
Despite recent attempts to move to a more generic, politically correct expression of ‘Happy Holidays’, the words ‘Merry Christmas’ still roll off our tongues with ease and great frequency this time of the year. It’s an expression of joy, good wishes and good fortune from one person to another.
Advance Care Planning
The Desert Valley Hospice Society
has developed a program to support people in planning for end-of-life.
Led by a team of trained professionals, this program is available
to anyone in our communities, regardless of age or health status.
We advocate for everyone to have
an Advance Care Plan in place.
Please call for information, or click here to read more about our program.
Have you expressed your wishes for end of life care?
Does someone know what you
Has your physician been informed?
