Starting a conversation about healthcare options when someone you love has a serious illness is difficult. However, you do not have to take the journey alone. As the #1 Home Health Agency with a #1 rated Medical Director and Nurse Practitioner, our experts offer a model of person-centered care that brings comfort, dignity and compassion when it is most needed. We believe in support that encompasses the entire family and offer hospice and palliative care in the comfort of your own home, a care facility, hospital or at our own Cedar Valley Hospice Home.

It is essential to understand that choosing hospice and palliative care is not giving up. It is not the abandonment of care. It is not reserved for the imminently dying. We can provide care for those with a life-limiting illness for an extended period of time. This means less stress on the patient, the caregiver and the family and more time making memories with loved ones that will last a lifetime. 


At Cedar Valley Hospice, we believe everyone’s grief journey is unique. Whether you’re an adult or a young person, our highly trained staff can offer counseling and support free of charge to anyone in the community, regardless of any affiliation with Cedar Valley Hospice.

COVID-19 has increased the need for grief as those who lost loved ones are challenged by restrictions to gather and grieve. Our grief teams have been right there for so many and currently offer the following:

  • Phone call grief support, education and counseling for all ages
  • Zoom grief support group meetings
  • Private Facebook page for those seeking support from like peers
