Due to COVID-19, we are not taking volunteers at this time. We will be seeking volunteers once this crisis is over.

Becoming a Hospice Volunteer is an amanzing opportunity to share your time, talents, heart and presence to 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 (including CPR certification) 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 and appreciated all that you do!

Opportunities are available in the entire Metro Denver area and your Volunteer Coordinator will match you with someone near your home or work so that it's convenient for you. Times and frequency of visits are flexible to meet your needs and usually take place in skilled nursing facilities.

Do you have a love for organizing, answering phones, filing and providing office support? We also welcome you to join us in the office for fun behind the scenes projects.

Call or email to set up an interview and start serving in a capacity that is meaningful to you!

Mission Statement

Dignity Hospice exists to provide symptom control and support for persons in the last phases of life so their remaining days are as joy-filled and comfortable as possible. Dignity Hospice recognizes dying as part of the normal process of living and focuses on comfort care to patients and their families. Dignity Hospice affirms life and neither hastens nor postpones death. Dignity Hospice exists in the hope and belief that, through appropriate care and the support of a caring community sensitive to their needs, terminally ill patients and their families may be free to attain a degree of mental and spiritual preparation for death that is satisfactory to them. Dignity Hospice offers palliative care to all terminally ill patients and support to those patients and their families without regard for diagnosis, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, race, creed, disability, age, place of residence or ability to pay.

Description

Hospice is a special way of caring for people who are in the final stages of life. Hospice affirms the belief that is is important to make every moment of life as fulfilling and meaningful as possible, from the first days of life-limiting illness, to the last.

At Dignity, we recognize that terminal illness can be an anxious and frightening experience for everyone involved. We will utilize our entire team to provide comfort and assistance to our patience and their loved ones. Preparation, information, and support can help bring peace of mind during this difficult time.

Volunteers are an essential and valuable part of the hospice care team and provide various therapies to patients and their families.
