High Peaks Hospice is a local non profit organization that allows people living with a terminal illness the choice to focus on their quality of life. We provide care that listens with respect, cares with compassion, supports with choice, and comforts with understanding – wherever you call home, even in rural areas.
Our team addresses the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of each individual we serve. This helps to provide a peaceful life closure that aligns with an individual’s values, wishes, choices and needs.
Soon after a terminal illness of six months or less is the optimal time to enter hospice but, since no one wants to think about losing someone they love, many families delay discussions about end of life care and wait to call until the final days or weeks of their loved one’s life.
We are here to tell you that there is no need to wait for a crisis to occur. We urge you not to wait and risk missing out on the comfort and peace of mind that hospice is uniquely designed to provide.
Learn the facts about hospice care to start receiving additional specialized nursing care, medications, medical equipment, and supplies related to your loved one’s terminal illness, at no cost, much earlier.
Anyone can make a referral to hospice including a personal physician, nurse, friend, neighbor, the patient themselves, or a family member. If deemed appropriate for hospice care, care may be received for an unlimited period of time, depending on the course of the illness.
No one is refused care due to an inability to pay. Hospice services are covered by the Hospice Benefit under Medicare with no co-pays or deductibles. Medicaid, as well as most private insurance companies and HMOs provide the same standard.
