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.”
