Volunteer Opportunities

Even amidst the pandemic, Namaste Hospice continues to provide life changing service to the residents of the Front Range and Grand County. Volunteers are invited to continue in person visits or work with our Volunteer Coordinator to contribute virtual support to the community. PPE & COVID testing offered to all volunteers completing in-person visits.


Multiple Training Sessions are available, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Katie Sue (Katelyn.VanValkenbur@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, the volunteer becomes 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 of the volunteer role:

  • Companionship
  • Respite care for family members and other caregivers
  • Massage, music or pet therapy, healing touch or other alternative therapies
  • Music or Pet Therapy
  • Bereavement support
  • Bedside/Vigil 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 hours of training. All volunteers must have proof of COVID19 vaccination, pass a background check, and complete all necessary paperwork. Training sessions are offered as needed, usually once per month. Training is conducted virtually.
