When you have a family member who is terminally ill, where do you turn?
If you’re like many in our community, you turn to TRU Community Care.
Because we say yes when the answer might otherwise be no. And we can say it because of your generosity.
At TRU, we take on the most difficult end-of-life cases; we say yes because we recognize that “no” means people without insurance have no other place to turn. We get to say yes right now because of your generosity to TRU. Thank you!
When you make a gift today, you’ll give friends and neighbors who are terminally ill the security of knowing they’ll get the highest quality care possible—care that’s respectful, compassionate, and personal. That’s priceless.
When Hearts Matter, TRU Is There
When Ciara first heard the term ‘hospice’ used in conversation about her mother, Eithne, the word invoked a lot of sad, scary feelings for her and her family. But what she learned from staff at our care center is that hospice is not a place, it’s a service, and its purpose is to care for everyone with the respect and individual care they deserve.
Eithne, Ciara, and their whole family felt so cared for with TRU, and they felt that way right up to the end—even though Eithne’s needs changed and she moved from our Care Center, she still received our unparalleled, responsive care and service.
You can give that gift to everyone in our community right now.
In Ciara’s words:
It was pretty immediately apparent that everyone who works there—nurses, doctors, volunteers—truly have the best interest of the patient in mind. My mother was very well cared for, and TRU has continued their exceptional service for my mother now that she has moved to a long-term care facility.
Whether in our care center, in the home, or in another living facility, TRU cares for people with personalized, responsive, respectful kindness—and we do what it takes to help people with advanced illness live fully.
We even said yes to a wedding!
Will you stand with us and the TRU commitment?
Eithne didn’t want to be alone during the most fragile time of her life. Neither did Ciara. So when Eithne’s scleroderma became so severe she could no longer travel and she needed hospice care, Ciara decided to move up her wedding date and move its location to the TRU Hospice Care Center in Boulder.
Wouldn’t you want your loved one there with you on your special day?
With Eithne’s care team in place, Ciara could focus on her big day with her mother by her side. For Ciara, her mother is the most important person in her life—she couldn’t imagine walking down the aisle without her. Thanks to TRU staff, the wedding was beautiful, and Eithne was cared for in a comforting environment as she enjoyed the love and excitement in the room.
Although the word ‘hospice’ may carry a heavy weight, the weight seems lighter when you have good people on your side. That has been our experience with TRU. Their kindness has made this very difficult window of our lives just a little easier to cope with. We are very grateful..
TRU gave Ciara the support she needed to feel hope in her heart again. She knew that the trusted, responsive, unparalleled service we provide for our community could help her mother live with her advanced illness as comfortably, confidently, and fully as possible, for as long as she lived. Your donation to TRU means providing that for everyone in our community.
You would never turn away a friend who needed your help, and we don’t either. When someone comes to us and their insurance won’t cover all of it, or even if they have no insurance at all, we say YES! You can say it too, when you give generously to TRU.
Last year, 1,411 people lived fully, comfortably, and confidently with their advanced illness thanks to our generous community supporters. With your help now, we can surpass that number. With a gap of $1 million between what insurance pays for and the cost of our outstanding care, our community needs your help now more than ever to bring our services to those who need it most.
We truly care for every patient with the same outstanding level of care and kindness. Our staff know that this might be the hardest time a family ever goes through and work hard every day to make things a little easier.
That never changes. There’s absolutely no difference in care when someone can’t pay. We work to make sure everyone who needs us gets this level of quality service, and your gift today is what makes that possible.
You can help real people, right in our own community, during the most fragile time of their lives.
I know that my mother received a great level of care from TRU. She was comfortable and her pain was well managed, but she also felt that she could talk to and spend time with her TRU caregivers as friends and companions, and that’s really what made the biggest difference day by day.
Your gift right now shares this most meaningful, vitally important service with everyone.
You can say it: yes, every person with advanced illness gets the care they need and deserve—everyone gets the same care, even if they can’t pay.
