Here for our patients, family and community through the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak
Agape is committed to the wellness and protection of the patients and families we serve, our employees, volunteers and our Denver community. The following are measures we are taking in this developing situation related to our services and Colorado-specific information and resources from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE).
Hospice And Palliative Care
Agape will continue to provide hospice and palliative care for patients and support for their families. Our teams are continuing to serve patients in private residences and assisted living/ nursing facilities. We are giving strict attention to facility protocols and restrictions in place in order to protect the vulnerable senior population and continue providing excellent care according to best practices.
At the same time, we are mobilized to respond to changes and impact on the communities we serve and are working closely with the CDC, CMS and other state and local health officials to respond accordingly to COVID-19.
We have implemented screening for staff, patients and families. We have suspended volunteer visits with facility-based patients. Otherwise, services will be provided per our standard best practices for hospice and palliative care.
Agape will continue to follow CDC and Colorado-specific guidelines and adapt as this situation unfolds. Our hearts go out to those families who have been impacted by the virus, and those who have lost loved ones as a result of COVID-19.
We will update this page with any changes. There are many places to get information. The following are recommended sites for reliable recommendations and updates.
