Hospice of Southern West Virginia Charity Profile

Hospice of Southern WV exists to serve the needs of individuals suffering from life-limiting illnesses as well as to serve the individuals caring for them. Our emphasis is on comfort and quality of life as we provide the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of the terminally ill and their loved ones in Fayette, Raleigh, Summers and Wyoming Counties. Our Hospice services are provided primarily in patient homes, but may also continue in most long-term care facilities and personal care homes. The Doug and Lucy Bowers Hospice House is an additional option for those in need of end-of-life care in southern West Virginia. Hospice of Southern WV, Inc. is a non-profit organization and we do not discriminate on the basis of age, sex, religion, nationality, race, sexual orientation,diagnosis, disability or ability to pay. As a non-profit organization, Hospice of Southern WV depends upon the generosity of the community for donations and volunteers to continue its services.
