Hospice

Our role at Interim HealthCare of Colorado Springs Hospice is to support our patients and families as they approach the end of their life.  We will help them understand the choices open to them and work to support them in their decisions.  We will provide personalized care, coordinating the services that will make them safe and comfortable.  We encourage contact with friends and family that allow important things to be spoken, remembered and celebrated.  
 
We offer the best in medical and nursing care, using state-of-the-art symptom management to control symptoms and promote comfort.  We believe in improving the quality of life when quantity is limited.  We respect patient decisions to forgo extraordinary measures meant only to prolong life.  We provide physical, emotional and spiritual support to patients and those who love and care for them.

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for your help with my Mom. She has grown very close to a couple of your care givers. Everyone is prompt and considerate of her needs. It’s comforting to know I have people who I can count on.
