Our volunteers provide compassionate social visits for hospice patients. Our patients benefit from a caring individual visiting with them, reading, playing cards, sharing musical talents, art and other interests that will improve quality of life. We have recently added Aroma Touch with essential oils to the list of support we offer. We will provide training and orientation, and make initial visits with you. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in the hospice field and can be a wonderful addition to any resume. We visit patients in their homes or facilities in Douglas County and surrounding communities. We have an office in Castle Rock, Glendale, Colorado Springs and have recently opened a new location in Pueblo. Please contact us with questions or if you are interested in learning more.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
