Berkley Hospice is currently seeking amazing volunteers to visit and support our patients & their families in the Denver Metro area.
Our hospice volunteers possess the following qualities: a calm and comforting demeanor, attentive, active listening skills, warm and friendly, empathetic and understanding of our patients needs with an ability to maintain excellent boundaries. If this description defines you, consider becoming a volunteer for Berkley Hospice - our volunteers regularly state that they receive much more than they give through their volunteer experience!
We request that our volunteers complete all required training, reference checks, interviews, paperwork, as well as a background check, CAPS check & tuberculosis testing (background check and TB testing provided at no cost to you).
Volunteers are crucial to hospice patients and their families. They provide support that helps enhance the patient's quality of life and reduces the family's care-giving burden. Every hospice volunteer has something special and significant to contribute, and Berkley Hospice welcomes new ideas.
