  • 2 people are interested

The Denver Hospice, founded in 1978, is the region's leading, largest and most trusted nonprofit provider of life-enhancing hospice and palliative care. Our skilled teams are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and care for patients wherever they reside - in their own homes, skilled-care facilities, hospitals or at our own Inpatient Care Center at Lowry.

We are looking for COVID-19 Screener volunteers at our Inpatient Care Center at Lowry. In this role, volunteers serve as the first point of contact to friends and family visitors. Create a warm and welcoming environment by screening visitors for COVID-19 using a screening questionnaire, taking temperatures and walking visitors to patient rooms, if needed. Two-hour shift minimum, any day of the week.

Our centrally located building has 24 private suites with patios. The homelike setting includes amenities like a family dining room, day rooms, a multi-faith chapel, library and hydro-therapy spa. Original artworks by distinguished area artists decorate our common areas and patient rooms. Gardens, walkways and high-tech innovations add to the light-filled ambiance and comforts of our Inpatient Care Center.
