Making Each Moment Matter

Starting a conversation about healthcare options when someone you love has a serious illness is difficult. However, you do not have to take the journey alone. Our experts offer a model of person-centered care that brings comfort, dignity and compassion when it is most needed. We believe in support that encompasses the entire family and offer hospice and palliative care in the comfort of your own home, a care facility, hospital or at our own Cedar Valley Hospice Home.

It is essential to understand that choosing hospice and palliative care is not giving up. It is not reserved for the imminently dying. We can provide care for those with a life-limiting illness for an extended period of time. This means there is less stress on the patient, caregiver and family and more time making memories with loved ones that will last a lifetime at home. 

Everyone Grieves Differently

At Cedar Valley Hospice, we believe everyone’s grief journey is unique. Whether you’re an adult or a young person, our highly trained staff can offer counseling and support free of charge to anyone in the community, regardless of prior affiliation with Cedar Valley Hospice. 


Our grief teams offer the following services:

  • Support groups in 4 locations (Waterloo, Waverly, Independence & Grundy Center)
  • Individual grief counseling for adults and youth
  • Private Facebook page for those seeking support from like peers
  • Annual grief camp for youth ages 5-12 (this year’s camp is July 19th)
