The mission of Lutheran Hospice is to provide compassionate, comprehensive and interedisciplinary care to terminally ill patients and their families.
Lutheran Hospice at Collier Hospice Center is a comprehensive program providing care and support for individuals with a terminal illness, and offering education and support for their families. Established in June 1985, the program is licensed by the State of Colorado, certified by Medicare and accredited by The Joint Commission, which sets the standards by which health care quality is measured.
Lutheran Hospice provides end-of-life programs and services in a variety of settings, including an inpatient unit and the patient's own home. Our services are created to meet the needs of the terminally ill and those who love them.
When my father was at the end of a very long period of declining health, Collier Hospice provided him a pleasant, peaceful place to make his transition from life. He hated whenever he had to go to the nursing home for rehab. It was a blessing that he was able to spend his last days in the hospice center.
The hospice also provided peace of mind for my mother, who was worn out from taking care of my father. At the end of his life, he couldn't do anything for himself.
