Who We Help

A critical illness can occur at any age. AVHS provides support to clients and their families who are facing life limiting illness.

We provide guidance and specialized programs while you are healthy and when your needs change. Our society also delivers ongoing support to family members after a death occurs.

Our programs and services are available free of charge to everyone in our community, except for a small per diem at Ty Watson house.

How We Help

We offer many services to individuals, friends and family members who are dealing with the stress and anxiety of preparing an individual who is taking the journey toward the end of life.
