In the News: Long-time Denver Hospice Volunteer Highlighted by FOX31 Anchor
The Denver Hospice is innovating during the pandemic to continue to provide comprehensive, quality, comforting care.
As a volunteer with The Denver Hospice for more than 36 years, Margaret Tews knows the importance of this support, and how vital it is for families to have conversations about their end-of-life wishes.
“Most people don’t want to acknowledge it,” Tews said. “You have to be drawn into it.”
During National Hospice and Palliative Care Month in November, Tews told anchor Jeremy Hubbard with FOX31 that the pandemic has brought attention to end-of-life care in a way that will benefit families as more people take advantage of services.
The Denver Hospice Inpatient Care Center is currently renovating six rooms to be able to care for patients who test positive for COVID-19. Those rooms are on track to be complete in early 2021.
