Volunteers are needed to provide compassionate service to hospice patients and their families. Patients may reside in their private homes, assisted living communities or skilled nursing facilities. Our main offices are located in Castle Rock and Colorado Springs and we have added a new location in Glendale and Pueblo. Volunteering is a great way to learn more about the field of hospice care and is an important addition to any resume. We provide orientation and on-going training and will make initial patient visits together. Some activities you might share with a patient could include, playing cards, reading, music or simply holding a hand. Aroma Touch with essentials oils has been added to the many things our volunteers can offer to our patients. Volunteers can also provide needed respite for the family and caregivers, Please contact us if you would like to learn more!
