Vigil Volunteer for Hospice Patients (11th Hour)

Save to Favorites

Brookdale Hospice Denver

  • 1 person is interested

Make a positive difference in the life of an actively dying hospice patient. Vigil Volunteers receive special training at Brookdale Hospice to become part of the patient's holistic hospice team-- Doctor, RN, Chaplain, Social Worker and you! As a Vigil Volunteer, you provide comfort and a peaceful presence when the patient's death is imminent.
Brookdale Hospice provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, and practical care for the patient, with emphasis on pain control and symptom management. Our program is a reflection of our spirit of caring. We emphasize comfort, dignity and respect. We believe that centering our focus on both the patient and the family enables us to provide the best care.
You must pass a background check, drug screen, two-step TB test, and successfully complete orientation. Weekly covid testing is also required, and full PPE is required when visiting patients.
Call or email CJ Pharr, Volunteer Coordinator at Brookdale Hospice to get started on this incredible journey. 719-268-2582 or cpharr@brookdale.com
