What is hospice care? Hospice care is a distinct model of care designed to bring compassionate comfort to those experiencing a life-limiting illness or injury. The heart of this specialized caring is a belief that every individual has the right to die pain-free and with dignity.
To help ensure this outcome, the hospice care model brings together a team of skilled professionals—experts in medicine, nursing, pain management, therapies, and psychological and spiritual support—to provide care customized to the individual’s needs and wishes. The individual’s loved ones receive support, as well, for end-of-life matters and moments that are life-changing for family and friends.
The Denver Hospice was among the first hospices in Colorado when it was founded in 1978. Nearly four decades later, it is Denver’s leading not-for-profit hospice and the most recommended. It now serves nine Colorado counties, providing hospice care to individuals in their own homes, skilled care facilities, assisted living facilities, group homes, hospitals and at The Denver Hospice Inpatient Care Center at Lowry.
