The Denver Hospice Mission Moments
As the leader in hospice care in our region, we have a responsibility to educate our community about hospice and palliative care and issues facing organizations like ours. Recently, The Denver Hospice has been involved in the following community media events to share information about our life-enhancing care.
The Denver Hospice partners with the CU School of Medicine to help guide the elderly LGBTQ Community
The Denver Hospice is partnering with the CU School of Medicine to help increase advanced care planning for LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) and other hi-risk elders.
