Volunteer with us! We are looking for compassionate volunteers who can support our sweet patients and families. Have an hour a week or every other week to read, write letters, talk with, provide companionship, go on walks, or provide a calming and uplifting presence for our patients? Connect with us to learn more!
What's required? TB test (covered through hospice), COVID vaccine card, background check (covered by hospice), up to date auto insurance and driver's license, and attending orientation and training (roughly 12 hours). We are very flexible with your schedule and will work around a time that's best for you! We serve from Boulder to Parker and will try to find a match that's close to you.
Why volunteer at Gateway Hospice? Our mission states that we are "committed to excellence in serving our community." How do we accomplish this? By providing our patients and their families with highly trained team members which include our nurses, CNA's, chaplains, social workers, volunteers, and office staff. We don't only focus on the physical needs but also prioritize our patients' spiritual and emotional needs.
If you have other skills that you think would be a good fit for our patients, let's talk!
