“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.

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.

Emily gives mountain residents their voice and helps them speak, think, and even swallow foods and liquids. “I am proud to help our mountain community in a variety of ways. Speech therapists have many roles outside of speech and language: educating families on disease processes, strengthening swallow function, and teaching memory strategies. My goal is always to put the needs of the resident and their family first.”
Kim is a perfect example of what makes Mount Evans special. She believes everything we say or do should be a benefit to the greater world.
Nancy provides spiritual care, unconditional love, compassionate support, and a listening ear to our patients. “Many people long for someone to truly “hear” and “see” them as they are. Illness and end of life concerns often cause people to reflect on their lives and frequently feel the need to express what they may have long held inside. I share with people that I do not have their answers, but remind them that their answers lie within themselves.”
