Make an Impact! in the metro Denver area

We’re looking for caring, compassionate people like you, who want to give something back to their community. If you truly want to help make someone’s life better as they cope with a serious illness, consider volunteering with Agape Healthcare.

No experience is needed. We are training you.

No matter what type of skill you have to offer, you’ll work side by side with inspiring and deeply caring people. We hope you consider joining us today!

Provide comfort and companionship to our seriously ill hospice patients by engaging in tasks such as reading to a patient who may not have loved ones close by, or running an errand for a stressed family.

Be part of our Birthday Brigade by joining us in celebrating our terminal ill patients birthday.

Beautiful ways to bring a smile to our patients that we care for.

Description

Over 18 years ago, founders Larry Woods and Kim West set out to establish an organization that would create a higher standard for end-of-life care in our community. Both had experienced firsthand the deep impact hospice care can have on people’s lives and wanted to provide that opportunity for our Denver Front Range community.

They set out to build a team of staff who not only are expert in their fields, but passionate about their work. Agape provides strong support and ongoing training, fostering a culture of excellence. Our caring staff goes above and beyond, meeting patients and families where they are and providing for each ones specific needs.

A privately owned, local organization, Agape understands, loves and is invested in our Denver community and has served many thousands of local residents and families with expert whole-person care.
