  • 2 people are interested

Bristol Hospice understands that Veterans have special needs. We are looking for Veterans who want to make an extraordinary difference in the lives of those facing terminal and end-of-life illnesses.

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. We serve a large veteran population here in Colorado Springs. Our We Honor Veterans program matches our active duty and veteran volunteers with the veteran patients that we have on service.

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, TB Test. Bristol Hospice provides an orientation class prior to the volunteer being paired with a patient/family.

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to give back to your community! We hope that you will consider becoming a part of our caring and compassionate team today.
