Hospice Services

Our compassionate hospice team is specially trained to provide comfort, dignity and support for those who choose to spend the final stage of life with loved ones in familiar surroundings.

Excellent medical and comfort care

Lutheran Hospice has earned a superior reputation for excellence since 1985. We are one of the few hospices in Colorado to be continually accredited by The Joint Commission, the gold standard by which healthcare quality is measured in the United States.

We offer a full spectrum of services, including home hospice, inpatient hospice, and palliative care in the home. Our services support the individualized attention you and your family members deserve, including:

  • Doctors, who are board certified in hospice and palliative care, are responsible for your plan of care.
  • Highly trained nurses make sure that your pain and symptoms are managed so you are comfortable.
  • Certified nursing aides help you with personal care.
  • Social workers, as your advocates, offer emotional support and can explain your choices about advanced directives and community resource options.
