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 20-hours of training. Training sessions are offered as needed, usually two to four times each year. Training is conducted at the Namaste Office in Denver.
