We have volunteer opportunities in the Security/Fountain/Widefield area. We also service the Colorado Springs and surrounding areas as well. Companion volunteers are needed to help provide a compassionate presence to hospice patients and their families. Patients may reside in their private homes, assisted living communities or skilled nursing facilities. Our office is located in Colorado Springs and Volunteering is a great way to learn more about the field of hospice care.
We provide orientation and on-going training.
Some activities you might share with a patient could include, chatting and listening, playing cards, reading, music or simply holding a hand. Aroma Touch with essential oils has been added to the many things our volunteers can offer to our patients. Volunteers can also provide needed respite for the family and caregivers, We do follow CDC guidelines and all staff including volunteers are required to wear masks during all visits and volunteers must be fully vaccinated.
Please contact us if you would like to learn more! You can contact Susan Hendrix, Volunteer Coordinator with New Century Hospice. 719-330-6652
