We’ve been offering our truly extraordinary physical, emotional and spiritual support to those facing life-limiting illness since 1980. Throughout these 38 years, we’ve been told by thousands of families that they simply couldn’t have done it without us. Sadly, however, we continue to see hospice-eligible patients delay admission, spending days rather than months receiving the comfort care that improves quality of life; grieving families in crisis as they anticipate the death of someone important to them; and people postponing communication about the kind of care they hope to receive at the end of life.
We’ve recently embarked on an important initiative to shift this regrettable trend and bring our services to everyone in our community who could benefit from them. How? By asking those who have first-hand experience with our organization to spread the word about Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care – sharing the message that even when a cure is not to be, here in our compassionate embrace, there is still reason to hope:
- That your days can be lived in comfort and peace
- That you’ll be cared for with expertise, dignity and respect
- That your wishes will be understood and honored
- That your loved ones will be supported and strengthened
Our belief is that the more conversations we can start in our community about the difference Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care can make now, the more people we can support at one of the most difficult and vulnerable times in their lives.
Please take a few minutes to watch our video, so that if you or your loved ones are ever faced with an advanced illness, you’ll know where to turn for help and hope. And please help spread the news so that all of your friends and family will know, too.
