Located in Canon City, our Colorado hospice has been offering our truly extraordinary physical, emotional and spiritual support to those facing life-limiting illness for more than 10 years. We service patients living in Fremont, Park, Custer and western Pueblo (West of I-25) Counties.

Throughout this time, we’ve been told by hundreds of family members they simply couldn’t have done it without us. Sadly, however, we continue to see hospice-eligible patients delay admission, spending days rather than months receiving the comfort care that improves quality of life; grieving families in crisis as they anticipate the death of someone important to them; and people postponing communication about the kind of care they hope to receive at the end of life.

We’ve recently embarked on an important initiative to shift this regrettable trend and bring our services to everyone in our community who could benefit from them.  How? By asking those who have first-hand experience with our organization to spread the word about Fremont Regional Hospice – sharing the message that even when a cure is not to be, here in our compassionate embrace, there is still reason to hope:

  • That your days can be lived in comfort and peace
  • That you’ll be cared for with expertise, dignity and respect
  • That your wishes will be understood and honored
  • That your loved ones will be supported and strengthened

Our belief is that the more conversations we can start in our community about the difference Fremont Regional Hospice can make now, the more people we can support at one of the most difficult and vulnerable times in their lives.

Fremont Regional Hospice is the area's leading provider of hospice services and this is why:

You are all amazing people. I have always had people tell me "It takes a special person to be a CNA." I say it takes phenomenal people to do what all of you do. I could not have made this journey without the help and support from all of you. Very special thanks to all of you. You are all a wonderful group of people, may God bless each and every one of you for what you do. Love you all. (FRH patient's family member)

Thank you all so much for the wonderful love and care that you gave to my wife. You made her final days so much more comfortable for her. Thank you also for your support of me. (Husband of a FRH patient)

Words cannot express our appreciation for the care Fremont Regional Hospice provided our mom and dad over the past 3 years. Thank you for the kindness and compassion you provided. You were always there when we needed something. We are forever grateful. (Family of FRH patients)
