Howard and Ginny Morton have lived in their own “heaven on earth” for the past 30 years in Pine Junction. “This 10 acres, this house, this view,” explains Howard, “When we moved here in 1980, I promised Ginny I’d buy her a mountain.” Ginny recalls with a laugh, “I’ve always wanted to live in the mountains. I’d only visited them once or twice with my parents, but it just involved me the rest of my life. I’ve got to go live in the mountains, so here we are.”
“In my experience, it’s rare to find an organization where 100% of the team is so passionately committed to the work of the organization and that is just remarkable. When we bring that passion, the commitment, the kindness, the care—that has an impression on people. We work for the community, we serve the community, and we’re supported by the community. and I just think that’s the heartbeat of Mount Evans and our mountain community.”

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.
Palliative Care is a type of healthcare for individuals with chronic or progressive illnesses that aims to alleviate symptoms and improve overall quality of life. Services focus on pain and symptom management and allow for curative treatment to also be sought at any point in the prognosis of a serious illness.
Our Palliative Care team provides holistic care by providing physical, emotional, spiritual, and logistical assistance.
My job is to raise funds to make sure the staff at Mount Evans is here to take care of everyone in our community for in-home medical needs whether you are in a car accident, have a serious illness, or need end-of-life hospice care. Last year, our clinical team conducted over 25,000 patient visits across a four-county service area regardless of the patient’s ability to pay. There is a good chance someone near you has received our services. Join me in donating to Mount Evans!”
