About

Volunteers are an essential part of our interdisplinary team and office support. 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, or just being present.
  • Cargiver respite: sitting with a patient so their caregiver can leave for an appointment or receive a break for a few hours.
  • Therapeutic touch, holding a patients hand, seeing them, validating them.
  • Music Therapy or simply, enjoying music together. If you sing or play an instrument that is a wonderful gift to offer our patients. However, it may be you share music from the library on your phone, which can also be enjoyed.
  • Light housework or errand running to support the patient and/or caregiver.
  • Office support: Your help filing, sending letters, or doing other office work enables staff to be more present in other ways.
  • 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.
  • Professional Volunteers such as a Massage Therapist or Cosmotologist truly can make a positive impact on a patients comfort and are very much appreciated.
  • The Denver area is a melting pot so volunteers that are bilingual often will have an opportunity to use their language skills.
