We're looking for volunteers able to relieve in-home caregivers (family members of patients) for 2-3 hours once weekly. No prior medical experience needed, you will NOT provide any medical care whatsoever, we have paid nursing staff who provide this to our patients. You will be keeping an eye on the patient so their family member can grocery shop or run errands knowing someone is with their loved one. We mostly need daytime volunteers available for a few hours ANYTIME between 10 AM - 4 PM Monday-Thurs. in case patients' family members need help so they can go to daytime appointments. In case of an emergency, we have a 24 hour on call nurse that responds pretty quickly to emergencies. On your 1st visit I (volunteer coordinator) will be with you the whole visit. I will explain the whole process during your in-person volunteer training.

This is an opportunity to make a small commitment (2-3 hrs/week) and have a HUGE impact on those you serve. Caregivers are often very grateful for your help. Being a Rocky Mountain Hospice volunteer is a richly rewarding experience and I look forward to meeting with you to discuss how YOU can join our compassionate volunteer team.
