How our organization has benefited the community:
100% of families we serve would recommend Hospice of the Foothills to others in need of hospice care. Hospice of the Foothills has provided end-of-life care for 33 years serving over 500 patients and families annually. We are the only hospice in our community providing Medicare Certified In-patient care directly. Therefore, the families we serve are more broadly supported in all care settings that include skilled nursing facilities, residential care facilities and most often in the patient’s or family’s own home. Our professional care team of hospice nurses, counselors and aides also includes the patient’s personal physician, our Medical Director and team physician who are board certified in hospice and palliative medicine.
In addition to our hospice programs and services, we support the community in the following ways: We give access to advanced care planning resources, provide a Transitions program at no cost for those needing advanced care but for whom hospice care is not a choice, offer community grief support groups, specialize in care to Veterans, and provide end-of-life education through our Speakers Bureau program.
Hospice of the Foothills is committed to ensuring end-of-life care with compassion and dignity for our patients and their loved ones. We are honored to serve anybody that is in need of supportive care services.
