Be a relief for Caregivers

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Bristol Hospice of Colorado Springs

We appreciate your care!
Hospice Volunteering

Caregivers (family members taking care of family living at home) often forget to take care of themselves. As a Bristol Hospice Volunteer, you will able to relieve some of their stress and give them time to take care of themselves. Times and dates are flexible but usually 2-4 hours are needed. Caregivers will need to go to doctors appointments, run errands or go see a grandchild play soccer; we never know. You will be sitting with the patient and reading to them, listen to music, go for a walk, make them a meal etc.

We are in dire need of help for our community members. If you have any questions, please call me 719-434-1773.
