Palliative Home Care: Bridging Health Care Services


Arizona Palliative Home Care (AZPHC) is a service that helps patients at any stage of chronic illness, who are struggling with daily living and disease management. Patients may receive palliative care while continuing to see their own doctors and pursue other curative medical treatments.

Our care teams work with your doctor to provide services wherever you live—at home, a group home, an assisted living, or skilled nursing facility. A team of doctors, nurses, nursing assistants, chaplains, and social workers are available to support both you and your family. Everyone has access to a 24/7/365 phone line answered by a nurse – never an answering service. We strive to help avoid emergency room visits and hospitalizations through more efficient coordination of medical services and better management of symptoms.

Our goal is to help you stay safe and healthy in the comfort of your own home. Please contact us to see how we can help you and your family.

AZPHC is a program of not-for-profit Hospice of the Valley. Michael Debo, DO, MS, serves as medical director. 

Care is provided through partnerships with contracted health insurance plans. However, we encourage you to reach out to us if you need assistance with symptom management, coordination of care or access to health support services. Even if the insurance provider isn’t a contracted partner, we have other payment options available to help out.

"My medical care has improved dramatically. Before, I was really afraid to leave the house to go to the doctor, so I was resistant. Now people come to me and I’m much better. It’s so reassuring."

Susie Coyle

"I was going to 15 different doctors, running all over the place, in and out of the emergency room. Now the quality of my life is so much better."

"The team is trying to make me comfortable in more ways than just medical … If I feel down, they’re here to give me advice. If I have a problem, they help me work it out."
