Dignity is accepting massage volunteers at this time. It has been a long year without volunteers and we are ready to have you back. Massage volunteers are finding their way back to hospice patients as the facilities open up. If you are interested in volunteering and have your massage therapist license please reach out, we can begin the onboarding process as it always takes some time to get the paperwork and training completed.

Our vibrant, personalized hospice company, Dignity Hospice of Colorado, is looking for Medically Trained LMT's to provide care to our patients at the facilities and home locations. We offer extensive training in hospice care, in addition to the skill you bring as a Volunteer Massage Therapist. Reach out, we would love to hear from you.

To start the training process we do background checks, CPR is required, TB tests, and in the fall require the Flu shot. The COVID vaccine is also required by our company and facilities are requesting it to visit patients, some still rehave weekly COVID testing done. We do require computer knowlege as we write our visit notes in our medical EMR. Dignity has on-going continuing education required, mostly on line, and we do make it fun.

Opportunities are available in the Front Range of Denver, Boulder, Longmont, Brighton, Greeley, Windsor and Ft. Collins. The Volunteer Coordinator will match you with hospice patients near your home or work so that it's convenient for you. Times and frequency of visits are flexible to meet your needs. Our Patients are all seniors mostly between the ages of 70-100. The Dignity Patients reside in Skilled Nursing, Assisted Senior Living Residences, and private homes.

Please reach out if this is an opportunity you have been looking for. Volunteers are the heart of hospice and we need you. Thank you, W.
