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.
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.
