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 that outcome, The Denver Hospice care model brings together a team of skilled professionals – experts in medicine, nursing, pain management, integrative therapies, and psychological and spiritual support- to provide care customized to each individual’s needs and wishes. The patient’s loved ones receive support as well.
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 Denver’s most highly and frequently recommended. The Denver Hospice 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.
