Giving Hands

An integral part of hospice care and serving our patients takes place in our office. Having an administrative volunteer contribute their time and talents in our office provides a variety of benefits to so many people!
Examples: answering incoming phone calls, assisting our Bereavement Coordinator, and so many other projects needed in caring for those we serve and the end of life.

All applicants will be required to take or provide evidence of a TB test, a flu test in the fall, pass a criminal background check and drug test, and will be provided with up to 8 hours of training on hospice philosophy.

Please contact Volunteer Coordinator Ron Faulkner at ron.faulkner@encompasshealth.com/720-602-3680 (cell) or 303-940-9999 (office)

Mission Statement

Description

Our compassionate end-of-life care is provided in the patient’s home, whether that is a home address, nursing home, assisted living community, independent living community or other location. It focuses on the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of both the individual patient and our patients’ loved ones: caregivers, spouses, children, extended family and friends.

We emphasize dignity and peace, controlling pain and other symptoms so the patient can remain as alert and comfortable as possible. Our medical social workers help the family understand and cope with loss; we can also call upon non-denominational chaplains to provide additional spiritual support and grief counseling.
