Hospice of the Valley will enhance its care for veteran patients with a $50,000 grant from the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services (AZPHC).

The grant will support palliative care for veterans with chronic illnesses who are not yet ready for hospice, and also dementia education for veterans in the community.

Nonprofit Hospice of the Valley launched AZPHC in 2011 to better care for patients with chronic illnesses who are in the last two years of life. The program provides symptom management, education and support to patients in their homes. The program is funded by grants, donations and some insurance plans.

Last year, AZPHC served more than 3,300 patients, 600 of whom were veterans.
