We adjust our care to your unique needs, helping relieve stress and manage pain and other symptoms. Our services can include other non-drug symptom management tools such as touch therapies, aromatherapy, Pet Therapy and Soothing Sounds music, that work together with traditional medical therapies. Medical research has demonstrated that these therapies can be instrumental in relieving stress, decreasing pain, and adding quality to one’s remaining days.
All Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care Complementary Therapies are administered by licensed therapists and specially trained volunteers. Some therapies are offered to patients in their homes, or in long-term care and assisted living facilities. Hospice professionals can guide patients in making informed decisions about their care and incorporating Complementary Therapies into a comprehensive plan of care. A variety of Complementary Therapies are also offered at the Pikes Peak Hospice Unit at Penrose Hospital.
Pet Therapy utilizes certified pet therapy teams that offer comfort and solace through one-on-one interactions. Our inpatient unit also features a freestanding aviary.
