A hospice volunteer who joins this team will often bring help and services to which patients and their families may not have access. Even without a medical background, a hospice volunteer has gifts they can offer. Note that while our office is located in Denver, we have patients living across the Front Range, ranging from Parker, Littleton, Aurora, Thornton and Westminster. We also have an office and patients in Grand County. Volunteers are needed in each area!

About Namaste Home Health, Palliative, and Hospice

Location:

6000 East Evans Ave, Suite 2-400, Denver, CO 80222, US

Mission Statement

Namaste Home Health + Hospice is a Medicare and Medicaid certified home healthcare and hospice agency that has been serving the greater Denver area since 1998. At Namaste Home Health + Hospice, we believe that choice always exists and that excellent quality of life is always attainable. Whether we’re caring for a senior after a surgery, supporting a patient’s family member cope with grief, or supporting a loved one with a serious illness, our team will seek to provide care that exemplifies truly Life Changing Service.

Description

Hospice is a philosophy aimed at providing comfort care to patients in their end-of-life stages. To carry out these services, Namaste Hospice utilizes a medically-directed Interdisciplinary Team involving patients, their families, medical professionals and volunteers. We believe that a "family" includes anyone significant to the patient, regardless of blood relation. This means that Namaste will provide bereavement support to all family, not just the immediate family.
