Yadkin County to get hospice home with help from SECU Foundation

Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care has announced plans for building a hospice home in Yadkin county.

Construction of the facility will be funded with monies raised in this year’s capital campaign.

“Our goal is to raise $2.5 million dollars, and I am happy to say that we are more than half way there, thanks to a $ 1 million dollar donation from the State Employee’s Credit Union Foundation,” said Denise Watson, Executive Director of Mountain Valley Hospice.

The new hospice home will be located on land purchased by Mountain Valley at the SECU campus along North Lee Avenue in Yadkinville.

It will be Yadkin County’s first full service hospice facility.

“The demand for hospice services is growing at a constant rate, and we do not see this trend slowing,” said Watson. “Currently about 35% of terminally ill patients in Yadkin County use hospice services, but with the new hospice home, we will be able to serve more patients who really want and need compassionate care.”

The new Yadkin County hospice home will offer a private, home-like setting, designed specifically to provide end of life care for patients who can no longer stay in their own home. The 10,000 square foot Yadkin facility will feature six patient suites with private baths, and enclosed outdoor patios. The new hospice home will also include a chapel, family living room, kitchen and dining area, a kids’ playroom, a teen room, community meeting room with covered patio, a sunroom, covered porches, and a beautiful courtyard with a view of Pilot Mountain.

Mountain Valley Hospice has been providing quality, end-of-life care, and compassionate support for patients and their families for over thirty years, and serves 16 counties throughout North Carolina and Virginia.

“Our dedicated staff and well-trained volunteers provide professional, individualized care for those who need it most, and the new hospice home in Yadkin County will only enhance that service,” said Ms. Watson.
