At Visiting Angels of Boulder County, we focus on elevating life quality in seniors by striving to meet your loved one's every physical, emotional, social and spiritual need through our Certified Palliative Care Program. While many people think that this is the same as hospice care, these terms denote different types of care. Our caregivers treat it as comfort care, as its goal is to provide support and comfort to seniors throughout Longmont, Boulder, Louisville and surrounding communities in Colorado, regardless of their life expectancy.

It is important to note that palliative and hospice care do have some similarities. They both aim to minimize pain and discomfort and allow seniors to improve their quality of life. However, hospice care is used by seniors nearing the end of their lives whereas palliative services are the right solution for older adults who require companion home care services that can boost their comfort and overall well-being, no matter how long they are expected to live.
