“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

Debbie Schwartz is the first person and the first smile people see when they walk through Mount Evans’ doors. Since 2012, she’s been greeting visitors, clients and staff. When she’s not working at Mount Evans, she gives her time as a volunteer with the Mount Evans Memory Quilters.
Isabelle loves working in the community where she lives. “You can’t go anywhere without somebody stopping you if you wear anything related to Mount Evans. They will say ‘this is what you did for me or this is what you did for my family’. It’s a small world and when this happens you realize how connected everybody is and that you can make such a huge change in somebody’s life and it could be somebody next door. It’s very fulfilling, very rewarding.”
Teri’s medical bag often is often stocked with a piece of handcrafted jewelry for her patients. As a hospice and home health care nurse, she takes care of mountain residents who are ill, injured or need help to be comfortable in their body and spirit as they leave this life.
