The Denver Hospice

For over three decades, more than 60,000 patients and their family members have turned to us for care and comfort during difficult times.
As Colorado’s leader in hospice and palliative care we are committed to caring for everyone who comes through our door wherever they call home.
The Denver Hospice cares for the elderly at the end of their long, rich lives, those struck far too young by advanced illness, offers comfort to those who choose to battle their life-limiting illness, offers comfort and grief counseling to families and friends.

35yrs of caring




The Denver Hospice celebrates 35 years of caring and honors the 60,000 patients and their families in our care since our founding in 1978.


The words our founder, Carolyn Jaffe, remind us each day of the powerful work we do . . .


“Dying is never easy.   Suffering and grief are always part of dying.  But closeness and warmth can be there, too. If I’ve done my job well, I feel the warmth and the closeness. I share the laughter and love. I know I’ve made the time better. I’ve changed the dying from something that’s feared, something that’s the enemy, to a natural part of life – maybe even a friend. The families tell me this, and I know it without their saying a word. This is powerful; it is beautiful.”
