What is Palliative Care?

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.

Embraced by Love

Unlike a lot of people who move to Colorado, Ray didn’t come here for the mountains, he was far more interested in a therapeutic treasure tucked inside them. A psychological social worker by profession, Ray served as the director of Forest Heights Lodge for 35 years. He dedicated his life’s work and heart to helping boys struggling with emotional, behavioral, academic and social issues.
