Bristol Hospice understands that Veterans have special needs. We have such a large community of Veterans and wish to provide the best for our veteran patients.

Our volunteers meet with the patient for up to one hour per week providing companionship, caregiver relief, dog visits, massage visits, or whatever gifts and talents they may have. These weekly visits take place at their place of residence. Our patients live throughout the Colorado Springs area in their homes.

Our We Honor Veterans program matches our active duty, retired or previous service veteran volunteers with the veteran patients who are interested in companionship from another veteran.

Volunteers serve the patient and their family under the guidance of the Volunteer Coordinator. All volunteers are required to complete a background check, drug screen (not THC) TB Test, which Bristol pays for. We provide all PPE and Covid precaution training in addition to our general hospice orientation/training.

We are looking for Veterans who want to make an extraordinary difference in the lives of those facing terminal and end-of-life illnesses. I hope you reach to learn more about how you can be of service.
