Are you, or is someone you love, living with advanced illness?
TRU Community Care is here to ensure that you or your loved one can live with that advanced illness as comfortably, confidently, and fully as possible. We offer several services to support the members of our community, as outlined below:
At TRU Hospice, we know that this is a very difficult and vulnerable time for you. Because you may have been fighting your illness for months or even years, considering hospice now may feel like a kind of surrender. Perhaps it will help you to remember that although a cure isn’t possible, there is still much you can control, and still great reason to hope for finding peace and meaning in each moment, enriching your relationships, and experiencing the end of life in a way that honors who you are and what you believe. As your focus shifts from a cure to quality of life, our goal is to help ease your burden and enable you to live every day that remains as fully as possible. Our pledge is to respect your wishes, protect your dignity and help you celebrate and complete your life at home, in comfort, surrounded by the people you love.

If you’re living with an advanced illness but are not eligible or ready for hospice care, our Community-Based Palliative Care may be the right option for you. This program allows those facing the challenges of a serious disease to continue to pursue life-prolonging treatments and simultaneously receive the benefits of our expert pain and symptom management. In addition, it provides you and your family with the education, support, and guidance needed to establish your goals for care and make informed choices throughout the course of your illness. Please call us at (303) 604-5272 to learn more our palliative care.
TRU PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly) launched in March 2017, coordinates and provides all needed preventive, primary, acute, and long-term care services so that older individuals can continue living safely in their community. TRU PACE is an innovative model that enables individuals who are 55 years old or older and certified by the state to need nursing-home-level care to live as independently as possible. TRU PACE will help participants and their family members navigate the complicated issues associated with aging.
To participate with TRU PACE, an individual must live in Boulder County or Southwestern Weld County (see our map of TRU PACE service areas) and live safely in the community. At the heart of TRU PACE is our Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) who will manage each participant’s plan of care. Our PACE site is where our IDT is located as well as our medical clinic, rehabilitation services, home health coordination, social work, recreational therapies, social activities, and much more. To learn more or to enroll in the TRU PACE program, call (303) 665-0115.
At TRU Community Care, we consider it a privilege to help those who are grieving regain their balance and resume healthy living. Whether you are looking for personal guidance or walking alongside someone who is, contact us to see how we can help. Extensive resources for people of all ages and stages in the grief process are available to everyone in the community and are free of charge. In addition to the wide variety of age and loss-specific grief support groups TRU offers, our experienced grief counselors are available for phone consultations or referrals, can suggest articles and other materials pertinent to your circumstances, and provide on-site support in traumatic situations. Families whose loved one received TRU’s services have the additional benefit of 13-months of one-on-one or family grief counseling. Please call us anytime for support at (303) 604-5300.
