The Denver Hospice is honored to serve a diverse range of patients throughout our nine-county area. Daily we work with people of different faiths, cultures, experiences and needs. Respecting these differences—both in life and at the time of death—so each individual and family is treated with dignity is a core value for everyone at The Denver Hospice. It directs the way we think, act, communicate, care and support. That commitment, a guiding principle of our nonprofit hospice from the beginning—is reflected in these special programs.
Carolyn Jaffe, an oncology nurse, founded The Denver Hospice. Carolyn believed in a denominational approach to hospice care and was passionate about ensuring exceptional end-of-life care for all in our community.
The Denver Hospice is the first hospice in Denver to earn Level 4 status in the We Honor Veterans campaign, a joint program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Veterans Administration.
