Hospice Volunteers needed- With COVID-19, restrictions in place our volunteer program allows for cards, phone calls, and some office hours. We are starting to have a few facilities open to volunteers with guidelines. We believe that with the vaccines more opportunities will open up. With that, we are seeking volunteers to get involved and begin the training process. Spring is upon us and so is the vaccine drive. We are hoping for the very best.
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.

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.
