ORGANIZATION: TRU Community Care

TRU Square Logo

Make a difference by sharing your time with a patient receiving hospice or palliative care.

We are looking for volunteers to help patients in Golden, Colorado.

We are the first hospice in Colorado, and one of the few remaining non-profit hospices in the region.

Volunteering in hospice is a powerful way to help people. Though people are often a bit afraid of conversations around death, actually working with hospice patients is a life affirming way to share your time.

In hospice we work with patients, we support their families, and we soften the end of another person's journey.

  • No experience working with hospice and palliative patients is required, just a compassionate and teachable heart.
  • A thorough and interesting training is provided.
  • Once trained, volunteers will have access to opportunities and choose the patient assignment that works best for them.

Mission Statement

TRU Community Care (TRU) affirms life at every step of your journey with illness and loss. Our vision is to lead a healthcare transformation by engaging with our communities and offering innovative, meaningful care for those living with illness and loss.

Description

We were founded as Boulder Hospice in 1976 to provide expert medical, emotional, and spiritual care to terminally ill people and their families.

As Colorado's first hospice, we have long set the standard for care of those with advanced illness in our region. And we continue to lead the way today, with innovative programs that honor the choices, preserve the dignity and address the individual needs of the patients and families we are privileged to serve.

As a nonprofit, community effort, we provide our hospice care for everyone who needs us, regardless of ability to pay. With a focus on providing a continuum of care for members of our community living with advanced illness and loss, TRU’s programs include TRU Hospice, TRU PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly), TRU Palliative Care, Landmark Memory Care, and TRU Grief Services.
