Discussing all one's care options—including hospice and palliative care—is appropriate at any stage of serious illness. For these discussions will help guide the individual, his or her personal physician, and family in making the best decision at the best time.
The Denver Hospice has set the standard for hospice and grief support in the Denver metro area since 1978. Our not-for-profit, community-based hospice serves nine counties and is committed to patient and family-centered care for individuals facing a terminal illness.
Hospice care is comprehensive care by a team of medical experts that allows individuals and their families to focus on living as fully as possible. Hospice providers served more than 1.6 million dying Americans in 2015 across the nation, yet there is still much that can be learned about what quality community-based hospice care is.
To plan for healthcare decisions, individuals in hospice should be able to understand their treatment options and be able to express their values and wishes.
The Denver Hospice provides all four levels of hospice care (as defined by Medicare) to meet the needs of patients and their families.
At The Denver Hospice, we understand that managing finances as well as a life-limiting illness or injury can be overwhelming.
