Cedar Valley Hospice at a Glance
Cedar Valley Hospice is a non-profit organization that provides physical, emotional, spiritual, and social support to terminally ill patients and their families. Cedar Valley Hospice is the leader in end-of-life care, providing compassionate and comprehensive care for the terminally ill and the grieving. The Cedar Valley Hospice teams are composed of doctors, nurses, social workers, home health aides, grief counselors, chaplains, and volunteers to keep pain under control and give support to family members.
Cedar Valley Hospice is a home care program that helps patients stay at home as long as possible, surrounded by loved ones, with pain under control. Emphasis is placed on living each day to the fullest, finding meaning in life and maintaining personal dignity and family integrity. At Cedar Valley Hospice, we add life to days. The patient and family remain the decision makers during the final phases of an incurable disease. Hospice also offers bereavement services to family members for thirteen months following the death of their loved one.
Serving the counties of Butler, Bremer, Buchanan, Black Hawk, Grundy, parts of Fayette and Tama, Cedar Valley Hospice offers a wide range of services to Northeast Iowa. With four central offices in Waterloo, Waverly, Grundy Center, and Independence, services are readily accessible. Hospice care is available wherever the patient calls home: including place of residence, nursing homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities or the Cedar Valley Hospice Home. Cedar Valley Hospice care is available to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay.
Cedar Valley Hospice offers help and support on a 24 hours a day, seven days a week basis.
Cedar Valley Hospice helps terminally ill patients live out their final days at home - even when they cannot. Terminally ill patients can spend their time with their families and loved ones, while the caring hospice staff eases pain and discomfort in the coziness of their own home. Cedar Valley Hospice recognizes that death is a normal part of life. Death need not be hastened nor postponed, but the patient should be free from pain and allowed to live out his or her life with dignity and quality. Referrals to Cedar Valley Hospice may be made by family members, friends, clergy, physicians, or other healthcare professionals.
