Volunteers needed for hospice patient and family care
4 people are interested
- Companionship - generally a once-per-week friendly visit. Volunteers might read to the patient, share a meal, go for a walk or an outing or simply sit quietly and hold their hand.
- Caregiver Relief - volunteers stay with a patient and give caregivers a sometimes much needed break to run errands, go to a doctor’s appointment or simply take some very important self-care time. Sometimes these are companionship visits with the patient and other times volunteers are asked to bring a book or knitting as they may be sitting quietly in the other room.
- Household Support - sometimes the difference for our patient’s between being able to stay in their own home or not depends on their ability to maintain simple household upkeep. Our volunteers often provide light housecleaning, help with laundry, or light outside yard maintenance.
Opportunities exist both in Larimer, as well as in Weld counties.

Pathways, located in Fort Collins and Greeley, is a local nonprofit organization providing symptom management and support for serious long-term illness, expert medical and hospice care for individuals navigating the last months of life, and grief counseling and programs for those mourning the loss of a loved one. From our beginnings in 1978, when a group of nurses came together in Loveland to voluntarily care for a friend in the final months of her life, we’ve been assisting Northern Colorado residents with hospice care and grief counseling regardless of financial circumstance. We serve individuals living in Larimer County, western Weld County, and the Highway 85 and I-25 corridors including the towns of Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, and Windsor.
Volunteers are truly at the heart of Pathways care, providing support to patients, families and Pathways staff. Today, more than 250 volunteers work in almost every department of Pathways.
We offer a variety of ways to become involved in clinical and non-clinical roles. Clinical roles include those in which volunteers provide support to patients and families; non-clinical roles are "behind-the-scenes" in nature and are vital to the delivery of our organization’s mission.
Whatever your skills, interests and motivations, our community is strengthened by your volunteer involvement. THANK YOU!
We'll work with your schedule.
