Intern/Volunteer
Volunteer Caregiver (Current Employee), Peoria, AZAugust 25, 2014
I have volunteered in several capacities with Hospice of the Valley, and have been given additional training to participate in in home care, dementia education, and currently serve as a 11th hour volunteer. This position is chosen due to prior positive service with Hospice of the Valley. Eleventh hour volunteers sit with patients who are in the process – more... of actively dying. We are there to be of help to the family if they are present, and/or to give them respite during this difficult time. But the number one objective is to be a calming presence, ensuring that the patient does not have to die alone. Their are so many rewarding parts of volunteering for Hospice of the Valley, but in choosing one it would be when I have the honor of sitting with a patient who is dying and has no family or friends present. The idea that the act of my being their for someone who has no-one at this time is especially gratifying. the most difficult is when a dying patient has a resemblance to someone I know. – less

Seeking New Challenge
RN Hospice Nurse (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZFebruary 19, 2014
Pros: good hours, nice co workers
Cons: duties continuously change-position has changed 3 times in past 6 months
Typical day in the life of a triage phone nurse. I multitask between taking patient /family calls and helping them with symptom/crisis management and referral to other team members as needed as well as dispatch and organize nurse visits and log visits and calls on excel document. At end of day I send report to my supervisor of the RN, CNA, and nurse – more... visits. I work well with a multitude of disciplines -from other phone nurses, field nurses, social workers, doctors and chaplains. – less

Non-profit for who?
Prefer not to say (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZJanuary 6, 2014
Pros: regular schedule, financially secure.
Cons: management, opportunity for advancement is non-existant, did i mention management?
Hospice of the Valley is one of those "non--profits" (yeah right) who are worried about one thing and one thing only....the bottom line. Management comes across as if they care but the reality is they don't. If this were a family, it would be a very large dysfunctional one. On one hand, the gave a great package to those they fired when cut backs came – more... but then froze any raises or promotions to those they kept. Hmmmm? Really? So you penalize those who were good enough to make your cuts but rewarded those who you fired...what message does that send to employees? Things work very, very slow with this company and there is little or no opportunity for advancement.

If your looking to be a yes man and not have a thought of your own, this may be the company for you. If you like a challenge, advancement, regular raises and fair treatment...look elsewhere. – less
