Volunteer Opportunities

Hospice volunteering is a wonderful way to give back to our communities in the Denver metro area and Grand County while filling your own cup! There are many ways you can get involved. Volunteers are an integral part of hospice work, and they offer help and services that may not have been otherwise accessible to our patients.

Please contact our volunteer coordinator at volunteers@namaste-health.com, to find out more information or sign up for training.

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, healing touch or other alternative therapies

  • Music

  • Pet Therapy

  • Arts and Crafts

  • Errands for the Family and Light Housework

  • Games

  • Bedside/Vigil or Eleventh Hour Care

  • Namaste office support

  • Veterans helping veterans

Give Back as a Hospice Volunteer

Volunteering with Namaste can count towards community service hours or volunteer hour requirements.

How to Become a Namaste Volunteer:

Before visiting patients or families, Namaste volunteers are interviewed by the Volunteer Coordinator and complete 6 hours of training. All volunteers need to have proof of COVID19 vaccination, pass a background check, and complete all necessary paperwork. Virtual training sessions are offered as needed, usually once per month.

Namaste takes the health of our patients and volunteers seriously, and offers PPE and COVID testing to all volunteers doing in-person visits.
