About

Volunteers are an essential part of the Compassionate Hospcie Care interdisplinary team. Your time is needed and valued. You may choose to serve in a variety of ways:

  • Pt companionship: sitting with a patient, reading to them, writing letters, listening to them and getting to know their stories, playing cards, going outside, crafting together, creating a memory book, listening to music or just being present and holding their hand.
  • Cargiver respite: spending time with a patient so their caregiver can leave for an appointment or receive a break for a few hours.
  • Music Therapy: Providing music as a comfort to a patient and/or caregiver.
  • Light housework or errand running to support the patient and/or caregiver.
  • Office support: Your help filing, scanning, sending letters, or doing other administrative tasks is incredibly helpful to staff.
  • Bereavement support: work with our Bereavement Coordinator and support families who have lost a loved one.
  • Pet Therapy is such an incredible modality that truly brings joy to patients and their caregivers. Your dog needs to have a Canine Good Citzen certification.
  • Professional Volunteers such as a Massage Therapist or Cosmotologist truly can make a positive impact on a patient's comfort.
  • The Denver area is a melting pot so volunteers that are bilingual often will have an opportunity to use their language skills.
