Construction is complete and the moving-in process is underway for the new Verde Valley Hospice Home at 421 N. Willard St. in Cottonwood, on the property of the former Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. Verde Valley Medical Center plans an open house for the new facility Aug. 22, acccording to VVMC spokesperson Trista MacVittie. The Hospice Home will feature 10 private rooms and provide a comfortable and peaceful setting for those who need hospice services, but lack the resources or support to stay in their own home. Construction of the house began in July 2013. The home's specially trained staff and volunteers will help patients and their families face the challenges of their life-ending illness by offering pain and symptom management, as well as physical, emotional and spiritual support.
