Hospice Care in Pueblo

Your comfort, safety and quality of life guide every step of our care. We start by listening. When we understand your needs and values, you receive a more personal level of support.

Care includes physical, practical, emotional and spiritual support for people and their families. Services from our team enable patients to have greater control over their lives, fewer unplanned hospital visits and more moments of joy with family and friends.

Our Medicare-approved support is provided through geographically assigned teams for faster response times. We’re here for families from Cañon City, Avondale, Colorado City and many communities in between.

What Is Hospice Care?

Hospice care is a type of healthcare that aims to reduce suffering and promote comfort at the end of an individual’s life. Pain and any other symptoms are managed around the clock, and the hospice team focuses greatly on spiritual and emotional health as well.

The foundations of hospice include nursing care with an emphasis on managing symptoms, practical assistance, and emotional support. Caring for a loved one at home can be challenging. Our goal is to provide timely services to help your family make the most of your time together.

  • Management of complex pain and other symptoms
  • Hospice aide for personal care and light homemaking
  • Medical social services
  • Spiritual care and support
  • Physical, occupational, dietary, and speech therapies
  • Support from volunteers
  • Short-term inpatient respite care (relief) for family caregivers
  • Ongoing Grief counseling for the patient, family, and friends
  • Hospice has four levels of care, carried out by a team of professionals to ensure dignity and comfort at the end of an individual’s life.

Your benefits include:

  • 24/7 access to care
  • Care coordinated with your doctor
  • Home medical equipment and personal care supplies
  • Managing symptoms and medications
  • Advanced wound care
  • Hospice aides to help with the tasks of daily living
