Hospice of the Valley’s first inpatient hospice home that was designed and built from the ground up opened in 2006 on the Mayo Clinic Hospital campus. Floor-to-ceiling windows afford views of the surrounding desert. Twelve private rooms each open to outside patios. A meditation room gives patients and families a quiet space, and a family room with a fireplace provides a conversational setting. Elegant and understated, the Sherman Home honors the memories of Minnie and Armond Sherman, parents of Evelyn Feffer, a hospice volunteer whose generous donation helped construct the home. Hospice of the Valley and the Mayo Clinic collaborate on providing and teaching about palliative care.
