As a Level 5 "We Honor Vets" non profit hospice we are hoping to provide some vet to vet volunteer opportunities to our patients for possible weekly companionship. There are times when only a vet can understand with a shared experience. We will provide Hospice training and support. Visits are usually approx one hour weekly. Drug screening and background checks are also required.

Description

The Denver Hospice provides high-quality hospice and palliative care services for patients with advanced illnesses and injuries. Headquartered in metropolitan Denver area, we support patients and families throughout nine Colorado counties. The heart of this specialized care is the belief that every individual has the right to die pain-free and with dignity. To help ensure that outcome, The Denver Hospice care model brings together a team of skilled professionals - experts in medicine, nursing, pain management, integrative therapies and psychological and spiritual support - to provide care customized to each individual’s needs and wishes. The patient’s loved ones receive support as well.

We are a not-for-profit organization. Our mission-driven commitment puts patients above profit and translates to more time, attention and experts dedicated to every person who needs our services, wherever and whenever they need us. In 1978, our founders, Carolyn Jaffe, RN and Peter Van Arsdale, PhD, recognized the need for comprehensive, expert and collaborative care for those facing aging, serious illness and grief. They assisted us in securing initial funding and laying the ground work for us to become what we are today - a nationally-recognized, best-practice model. Our personalized care supports mind, body and spirit, giving our patients and their families control over their lives with dignity, joy and unparalleled experience and support.
