Bristol Hospice of Colorado Springs is looking for 11th hour volunteers.

These volunteers are called to sit with patients that are actively dying or have passed. Patients who have little or no family members nearby often find themselves isolated and alone during their last days. Our 11th hour Volunteers provide a comforting presence needed by patients and families in the final hours of life.

Vigil Volunteers can help by:

  1. Being a calm presence
  2. Sitting with the patient and/or family
  3. Talking softly or singing to the patient
  4. Sharing a sacred silence
  5. Holding hands, massaging hands or feet
  6. Praying, reading inspirational text or scripture
  7. Playing music

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 sucessful and you are always supported by our entire staff.

In May we had a surprise CO State Licensure Survey and passed with 0 deficiencies - basically an A+!! Become a part of our team...www.bristolhospice-volunteer.com.
