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.

Better Hearing & Speech Month 2021 logo

May is Better Hearing and Speech month

“Communication is the essence of human life”
-Dr. Janice Light

It’s easy to take basic communication skills for granted. When we can effortlessly communicate, we don’t give much thought to being able to express an idea through clear, articulate, understandable speech. But when we lose the ability to speak clearly and without effort, we instantly become aware of how large a part speech plays in our everyday lives. Losing the ability to speak can leave people feeling isolated and helpless.

April is Occupational Therapy month

“Medicine adds days to life, occupational therapy adds life to days.”
– Unknown

For the past 40+ years the American Occupational Therapy Association has been celebrating April as Occupational Therapy month. These compassionate professionals help people of all ages safely recover from or adapt to changes from injury, illness, disability, or aging through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). They work with those recovering from an injury or illness regain skills and also work with aging adults to help them remain independent.

Social Workers are Essential logo

March is Social Work Month

“Social work is the art of listening and the science of hope.”
~Anonymous

March is the month all America recognizes and celebrates social workers. These caring professionals are trained to help people see and surmount the barriers keeping them from living their optimal lives, whether those obstacles are physical, emotional, financial, systemic or all of the above. And, as the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) describes, “They are employed to effect positive change with individuals, families, groups and entire communities.”

We Love Our Patients

For the second year in a row, Mount Evans was named a Top Company in the field of health care by ColoradoBiz Magazine. Rather than send our administrative team, we wanted the caregivers who serve their mountain communities day in and day out to have a moment to shine.

The Story of How a Classified Ad Changed a Life

Richard Cox keeps an envelope in his room. If he didn’t offer to show it to you, you likely wouldn’t notice it. To the unknowing eye, it simply looks like a well-worn envelope. What makes it special is what it holds – a carefully curated collection of extraordinary moments from a life lived with purpose.

The Will To Walk

The simple act of putting one foot in front of the other is one of those things that most of us take for granted. It’s not until we are faced with the prospect of losing this ability or having to relearn it that we realize how it important it is to our health, happiness and independence.
