Volunteer Opportunities

Even amidst the pandemic, Namaste Health continues to provide life changing service to the Denver metro population. Volunteers are invited to continue in person visits or work with our Volunteer Coordinator to contribute virtual support to the community. PPE offered to all volunteers completing in-person visits.

Multiple Training Sessions available, please contact Namaste (info@namaste-health.com) to find out more information.

Our goal is to create an environment in which patients, families, staff, and hospice volunteers are treated with respect and dignity. When a hospice volunteer is assigned a patient we want the volunteer to become an integral member of that patient’s interdisciplinary team.

A Hospice Volunteer who joins this team will often bring help and services to which patients and their families may not have access. Even without a medical background, a hospice volunteer has gifts they can offer.

Here are some examples:

  • Companionship
  • Respite care for family members and other caregivers
  • Massage, music or pet therapy, healing touch or other alternative therapies
  • Bereavement support
  • 11th Hour care
  • Clerical assistance at Namaste’s office
  • Practicum and internship opportunities
  • Veterans helping veterans

Before visiting patients or families, Namaste volunteers are interviewed by the Volunteer Coordinator, and must complete 10-16 hours of training. All volunteers must pass a background check. Training sessions are offered as needed, usually two to four times each year. Training is conducted at the Namaste Office in Denver.
