Our programs include:
This program offers specialized education and support to any child or teenager experiencing grief. Our expert youth counselors provide support groups, camps & retreats, grief groups, school counseling, equine therapy, and individual counseling. In 2022, we served over 560 grieving children and teens.
Hospice care was created to care and comfort those in the final stage of life. HopeWest care teams provide patients with extraordinary care, focusing on high-quality, comprehensive care, with compassion and understanding. Families of patients are included in our model of care, transforming fear and stress into peace and reassurance. HopeWest provides care in Grand Junction, Delta, Montrose, Meeker, and Plateau Valley as patients can receive care at home, in assisted living facilities, nursing facilities, hospitals, and our own in-patient facility, the Ferris Care Center.
HopeWest Grief Support:
Grief is a natural and necessary process when experiencing a loss. HopeWest Grief Support offers education, counseling, and support to anyone grieving the loss of a loved one. Through individual counseling, equine therapy, and other group sessions, we help adults cope in a way that best fits their grief and situation.
HopeWest was founded in 1993 through a collaborative project of five healthcare institutions, envisioning a comprehensive, non-profit, community-based hospice program.
Volunteers play an integral role in the transformational care of patients and families. We have 960 active volunteers involved throughout HopeWest, from gardening, patient care, vigil care, Heirlooms for Hospice stores, administrative aid, and more.
HopeWest continually strives to offer specialized programs to meet the unique needs of our communities. HopeWest PACE (Program for All-Inclusive Care of the Elderly) is designed to help elderly people live safely at home. Each person's unique needs are met by providing and coordinating medical and support services such as medication, doctor & specialist visits, home care, hospital visits, nursing home stays, transportation, and physical, emotional, and social care.
