Pathways Hospice and Palliative Care

     

Since 1978, Pathways has served the community with the utmost compassionate care. Originally staffed by volunteers to provide comfort care in the final days of life for just 17 patients, Pathways has expanded astronomically to offer comprehensive hospice care, palliative care and grief and loss support for all, regardless of ability to pay.

Throughout the past 40 years, we have built strong relationships with physicians, facilities, therapists and other members of the medical community to provide the best care possible. We now serve thousands annually, including 1,200 hospice patients, 2,800 palliative care visits and 3,400 community counseling sessions.

Our Vision

Pathways is committed to being northern Colorado’s preferred provider of hospice and palliative care services through excellent patient care in all settings, as well as comprehensive grief support. We educate about end-of-life care, partner with caregivers, remain good financial stewards, grow to meet our community’s needs, and strive to be an employer of choice.
