The Denver Hospice provides care in various settings.
Whether in your own home, a skilled nursing facility, assisted living facility or a hospital, we will provide superior medical attention and compassionate support. If a patient requires care outside of their personal residence, an admissions nurse can advise you on what facilities partner with The Denver Hospice.
Most hospice patients receive care in their own home. The patient, their family, the primary care nurse, social worker and chaplain determine the number of hospice visits based on each patient’s needs.
Skilled Nursing Facility or Assisted Living Facility
Many hospice patients live in skilled nursing or assisted living facilities. Visits by the hospice team are the same as they are for patients living in private residences. The hospice team works with the facility staff to ensure proper care is provided.
The Denver Hospice Inpatient Care Center
The Denver Hospice Inpatient Care Center is a place for hospice patients to go when their symptoms are out of control and they need 24-hour short-term nursing care.
Patients who are terminally ill receive care from our hospice team as well as from the hospital staff. Our shared goal is to ensure each individual’s comfort. A member of our hospice team visits each hospital patient daily. When the patient’s condition changes, our team works with the hospital staff to create a plan of care that begins with discharge from the hospital to an appropriate setting, which could be a skilled care facility, assisted living community, group home or private residence.
