Special Offerings

Due to the COVID-19 Outbreak, all public gatherings, in person and group counseling sessions are suspended until further notice.  Support from a Grief Counselor is still available by phone by calling 719-884-6530.  Leave a message and a Counselor will call you back. 

The Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care Center for Grief and Loss offers a number of special events, programs and resources to support families who have lost a loved one in our care, as well as our community. 

Grief and Loss During the Holidays Programs

Since the holiday season can be a difficult time of year for someone who has experienced the loss of a loved one, we offer special programs to provide support during this time.  Click here to watch a video about the special holiday programs we offered in 2019.  

Commemorations

Commemoration is deeply rooted in the culture of Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care. We know how important it is for family and friends to have opportunities to remember their loved one and even reconnect with staff members. Services include a number of commemorative celebrations throughout the year, including our annual Commemorative Celebration (held the first Saturday after Memorial Day), Tribute Wall Memorial Receptions and Trees of Life Tree Lighting Ceremony.

What Our Families Say

What you all do is amazing.  Thank you for all your help, support and guidance for my mother and family.  It was such a gift and a blessing to be with my mom and take care of her and to have her at home with my daughter and I.  We will never forget your kindness.  Thank you! ~ Patient's family

The services my husband and I received during his last stages of life were invaluable to us.  His primary wish at the end was to be at home.  I was very afraid that I couldn't grant that wish, but with the help of Pikes Peak Hospice he was able to be at home, where he was comfortable, until the very end.  I am also truly thankful for the grief counseling that you provided to me. ~ Patient's wife

Thank you for all your assistance during this time and for the care of my mother.  There are not enough compliments to give for the support, knowledge, bedside manner, courtesy and kindness. ~ Patient's daughter
