“Mountain people helping mountain people.” - It’s Who We Were Then And It’s Who We Are Now
Our Patients | Our Family | Our Heart
Our Heart Is in the Home. When Mount Evans was founded in 1980 our motto was “Mountain people helping mountain people.” It’s who we were then and it’s who we are now. Our heart has always been and will always be in the home and with our patients. Our mission is special and there isn’t a day that passes that we don’t realize how lucky we are to know, love and care for the extraordinary people in our mountain community. We also recognize that we couldn’t do what we do without the backing of a remarkable community.
Throughout the next year, we plan to share our stories. We hope to touch your heart in much the same way as our patients touch ours. We also want you to know us and why we do what we do.
Please follow along in Colorado Serenity Magazine, Canyon Courier, Clear Creek Courant and the 285 Hustler as well as our social media pages to learn why Our Heart is in the Home. We think you’ll be inspired.
Our Patients - Our Heart
We Honor Captain Chester Peek – World War II Veteran, engineer, author, and antique airplane restorer
Every November 11 on Veterans Day, we celebrate those who have served our country for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. At Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice, our clinical care team has received veteran-centric education as part of We Honor Veterans, a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs focused on “respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment.” This Veterans Day, We Honor Captain Chester Peek, a 101-year-old World War II Veteran, engineer, author, and antique airplane restorer.
Our Family - Our Heart
Working and serving in her community has always been a priority for Kristy. She waited patiently for a social work position at Mount Evans. When a job in palliative care opened, she spent a year counseling patients coping with illness and supporting them throughout their journey.
Judy is part of a specialty team at Mount Evans that cares for mountain residents diagnosed with serious illness who are seeking treatment for a cure or better ways to manage their condition. In other words, patients don’t have to choose between treatment for their illness and palliative care; they can have both.
Inspired by her sister’s hospice care experience, Betsy began volunteering her time. “I had only heard good things about Mount Evans when I came to Evergreen years ago. After being on the “inside” for a while now, I can only say that the devotion to patients, the love and compassion shown to all, and the dedication to great care that each and every one here has is totally inspiring. It is so nice to be a small part of something so wonderful.”
