HSWV Services

Families in Fayette, Raleigh, Summers and Wyoming counties have turned to Hospice of Southern West Virginia for support, pain control and comfort for their loved ones for more than 30 years. 

Hospice Offers...

  • A program of coordinated care for participants in the last stages of their illness.
  • A professional, team approach to caring for the whole person.
  • Palliative, not curative, treatment including all medicines and equipment related to the terminal diagnosis. 
  • Services available on call, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Trained volunteers who provide non-clinical support relating to the individual needs of participants and their families.
  • Bereavement care and 13-month continuous follow-up.  Our role does not end with the death of a Hospice participant.  On-going bereavement care is available to the participant's family and friends following a loved one's death.  Individual counseling, group support, and informational mailings are offered to help guide those bereaved through the natural grieving process.  This service is open to the public, not just to Hospice families.
