Calidad de Vida's first official fundraiser is set for Sunday, April 18 at Casa Isabel in Puerto Vallarta.
Calidad de Vida is a new bi-lingual, multi-cultural non-profit agency that will provide high-quality care to all people in and around Banderas Bay who have a life threatening illness. Rather than provide care in a foreign location, Calidad de Vida will go directly to the patient's home and provides their services in familiar and comfortable surroundings.

They are committed to providing all individuals, regardless of race, gender or ability to pay, access to services that allow living and death with dignity by limiting spiritual, emotional and physical pain through continuous support and medication as needed. They will also offer bereavement services to family members for up to a year after a loved one has past.

They are not a one-size-fits-all agency, rather they customize their in-home treatments based upon the needs of the individual and their family ensuring a personalized plan, through their team approach.

Calidad de Vida, a recognized non-profit agency by the Mexican Government (as Bahía de Banderas Hospice AC), is managed by a dedicated group of physicians, psychologists and nurses and is devoted to the highest quality of living possible for patients and their families. For additional information, to contact Calidad de Vida, or to make a donation, please visit their website at
