Namaste Home Health + Hospice is a Medicare and Medicaid certified home healthcare and hospice agency that has been serving the greater Denver area since 1998. At Namaste Home Health + Hospice, we believe that choice always exists and that excellent quality of life is always attainable. Whether we’re caring for a senior after a surgery, supporting a patient’s family member cope with grief, or supporting a loved one with a serious illness, our team will seek to provide care that exemplifies truly Life Changing Service.
Hospice is a philosophy aimed at providing comfort care to patients in their end-of-life stages. To carry out these services, Namaste Hospice utilizes a medically-directed Interdisciplinary Team involving patients, their families, medical professionals and volunteers. We believe that a "family" includes anyone significant to the patient, regardless of blood relation. This means that Namaste will provide bereavement support to all family, not just the immediate family.
