Suncrest Hospice of Colorado Springs is looking for 11th Hour Volunteers. These volunteers are "on-call" during specific hours of the the day to sit with patients that are actively dying. Patients who have little or no family members nearby often find themselves isolated and alone during their last days. Our 11th Hour Volunteers keep vigil to provide a comforting presence needed by patients and families in the final hours of life.
11th Hour Volunteers can help by:
Being a calm presence during a difficult time
Sitting with the patient and/or family
Talking softly or singing to the patient
Sharing a sacred silence
Holding hands, massaging hands or feet
Praying, reading inspirational text or scripture
Honoring cultural and faith traditions of the patient
If you are interested in being a part of this very sacred time in a person's life, please contact us for more information. We provide the training that we feel you need to be successful and you are always supported by our entire staff.

We believe that exceptional healthcare should encompass more than just the technical side of things--it should also extend to meet the needs of patients and their families in a way that’s comforting, personalized, accommodating and dignified. To that end, we make it our focus to showcase our passion and integrity on all levels of the spectrum of healthcare, from providing unparalleled clinical care to interacting with our patients and their families on a personal and emotional level. We’ll be here for you in every capacity we can, from the early stages of rehabilitation, to the final moments of life.
