Care, comfort, dignity and respect
“The philosophy of Vale House is that of hospice care for terminal mental illness. Because of this philosophy of care, the skill and training of its staff, and the widespread local appreciation of its special role, Vale House is able to accept people who suffer dementia in its severest and most difficult forms, and support them to the end of their lives. The careful thought put into the original conception of the home, the development of its operational policy and training programme, and the approach to care, sustained over the years, that treats each resident as an individual whose life has meaning and value, has made Vale House a source of learning and example throughout the country and further afield.”
