The Denver Hospice, founded in 1978, is the region's leading, largest and most trusted nonprofit provider of life-enhancing hospice and palliative care. That means we offer more expertise, more resources and a more complete continuum of compassionate care to patients facing life-limiting illnesses and end-of-life transition. That means our patients and their families get more from life. Our skilled teams are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and care for patients wherever they reside - in their own homes, skilled-care facilities, hospitals or at our own Inpatient Care Center at Lowry. Headquartered in metro Denver, we support patients and families throughout nine Colorado counties - from Boulder to Castle Rock and from Golden to Bennett.
Volunteers are important members of our circle of care and we truly value and support our volunteers! We require volunteers to be at least 18 years old and able to provide their own transportation. We expect a commitment of at least 1 year, volunteering 2-3 times per month. We prohibit volunteers from promoting products or services to our patients and families and we are unable to support community service hours.
Please contact our Volunteer Engagement Department at 303-228-5610 or firstname.lastname@example.org to apply. Application, interview and training required for clinical and office support volunteers.
