Construction is nearly complete on the SECU Hospice Home of Yadkin. Marty Driver, director of patient services for Mountain Valley Hospice, said the building is expected to be finished in late March and they hope to be open in April or May.
While the group has met its primary fundraising goal of $2.5 million, there is an additional million dollars of the project that will be financed and donations are still needed. For those interested in being a part of the project, there is also a need for smaller donations to put the finishing touches in the facility.
“As we prepare to open our doors this spring, we need to purchase some basic supplies, such as decorative finishes, kitchen and bath items. That’s why we are asking folks to help out by sending in either a $50 visa, gift card, or make a $50 cash donation,” said Denise Watson, executive director of Mountain Valley Hospice. Donations will be accepted through the website, mail or in person at the Yadkin Hospice office, located at 320 W. Maple St., Yadkinville 27055.
The new SECU Hospice Home is located at North Lee Avenue, adjacent to the State Employee’s Credit Union campus in Yadkinville. It will offer a private, home-like setting, designed specifically to provide comfortable, end-of-life care for patients who need management of pain and other symptoms than cannot be managed in their current setting or can no longer remain in their own home.
The 11,000-square-foot facility will feature six, 300-square-foot patient suites with private baths and enclosed outdoor patios. The new hospice home also will feature a chapel, family living room, kitchen, dining area, a children’s playroom, a teen room, community meeting room, a sunroom, outdoor patios, and a beautiful courtyard with a majestic view of Pilot Mountain.
