Seeking Hospice Volunteers: Are you looking to add a meaning experience to your life? We would like to give you that opportunity, and our Patients need you. Our hospice volunteers have many opportunities to choose from; in-person visits, music, art, mailings, bereavement assistance, cards, 11th-hour visits, and Office Administration Hours. Our communities are welcoming volunteers and we are hoping to get our mutual patients companionship from volunteers. We are seeking volunteers who want to get involved and begin the training process.

Becoming a Hospice Volunteer is an amazing opportunity to share your time, talents, heart, and presence with people and their families facing end-of-life issues. Hospice Volunteers are needed to provide non-medical supportive services such as companionship visits, engage in life-review, read, play music, watch TV/movies, alternative healing therapies, respite-care, compassionate presence, veteran to veteran connections, and bereavement support.

As a Volunteer, you are an integral member of the amazing hospice team and are provided with free comprehensive training so that you feel confident and comfortable providing your volunteer service. We value your time and want to provide opportunities for service that utilize your skills, gifts, and talents in a meaningful way. You will be supported each step of your journey with great appreciation!

To start the training process we do background checks, CPR, and a TB test are required, and in the fall you will need to get a Flu shot. Proof of the COVID vaccine is not mandetory but we do encourage it. We do require computer knowlege and having a smart phone as we write our visit notes in our medical EMR. Dignity offers continuing education that is required, it is on-line, and you will learn so many great things.

Opportunities are available in the Metro Denver area, Castle Rock, Boulder, Longmont, Brighton, Windsor, and Ft. Collins. The Volunteer Coordinator will match you with hospice patients near your home or work so that it's convenient for you. Times and frequency of visits are flexible to meet your needs. Our Patients are all seniors mostly between the ages of 70-100. The Dignity Patients reside in Skilled Nursing, Assisted Senior Living Residences, and private homes.

Volunteers are the heart of hospice. Please reach out and let's get started.
