Hospice of the Valley
Hospice of the Valley delivers palliative and hospice care in the familiar surroundings of patients' homes or where they live. Members of the hospice team make house calls much like the family doctors did years ago.
We are the leading provider of hospice care in Arizona and also offers a full spectrum of services, including pediatric care, dementia care, pulmonary care and palliative care for those suffering chronic illness.
We strive to meet the physical emotional, social and spiritual needs of our patients, families and caregivers.
Visiting Angels help families assess all the tools they need to remain where they want to be, safe and sound, wherever they call home.

Wayne was a caregiver for his wife for many years prior to her passing in 2017. In order to provide services and therapies to his wife, it was necessary to travel 300-400 miles each week for the services. Unfortunately those services are/were severely absent in the south east valley. Mr. Mangold wrote a memorandum describing his journey to locate and provide those services and therapies. Afterwards he visited each of the partners requesting help to create programs in the southeast valley for current and future families traveling similar journeys.
