Who Are We?
Divine Mercy Supportive Care offers compassionate care to those who face end of life illness while affirming the dignity and sanctity of human life.
While hospice care is not a new concept, we at Divine Mercy have distinguished ourselves by offering care that is in keeping with the 2000-year rich tradition of Catholic healthcare to help assure that Catholics and their families receive sustenance in their faith at a time when a dying family member is as close to God as he or she will ever be while still here on earth.
Whether the need is for medical services, guidance on ethical or faith decisions, or simply finding an open door where others were closed, Divine Mercy is here to help in a distinctively Catholic manner.
Physicians, RN, and staff are not only dedicated to the highest standards of medical care but also remain morally focused. Chaplains are priests or deacons and they assist in preparation for everlasting life in a respectful spiritual manner, no matter where the care receiver is on the spiritual path.
While compassionate care often extends to include euthanasia, Divine Mercy’s educational efforts are intended to help both the dying and their care providers with the necessary tools to make informed ethical choices based on state, federal and Christ-centered law. Divine Mercy supports choice based on the Directives of the USCCB, including a choice to suffer or be free of pain in dying a natural death. It does NOT believe or support physician (or other) assisted suicide.
Responding to Divine Mercy care receivers who have indicated that they wish to get their “affairs in order” and would like to “connect” with family members, Divine Mercy has designed the Grace Project™. It is designed to assist those who are unable to afford legal, financial or medical consulting services. Also, it aids in re-connecting with distant family members. A highlight of the Grace Project™ is the assistance to priests, religious and other clergy, and indigent populations to receive financial, legal, and medical supportive care in concert with Catholic doctrine.
Divine Mercy Supportive Care is a Nonprofit, 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization dedicated to the Catholic Standard of Care™. We are licensed as a Hospice by the State of Colorado and the Department of Public Health and Environment.
