Description
Serving and companioning others during the end of life is a profoundly rewarding experience. At Encompass Hospice. we have a team of dedicated professionals and volunteers who know the wonder, awe, beauty, grief, and joy that can be felt when we walk with families and patients during one of the most profound times of their lives. We are always seeking volunteers who believe in holistic care for the whole person - emotional, medical, spiritual, and social.

Our volunteers do everything from deep listening, to facilitating life review, to helping keep a safe and comfortable home by helping with small chores. Our volunteers are an integral part of each patient's team, including a doctor, a nurse, a social worker, a certified nursing assistant, and a chaplain. Your input and contribution to the patient's care is invaluable to us as we assist people in their journey towards death and the completion of life. Whatever your skills may be - massage, reiki, hair and nails, deep listening, scarpbook making, etc - we have a place for you.

We also welcome volunteers who would like to support the mission of Hospice with administrative work - writing condolence cards, after-death bereavement paperwork, and more. Each volunteer is given appropriate hospice training and education (based on previous experience, beginners welcome!) and will be asked to visit at least one patient, at least every two weeks, for 1-2 hours, though visits can be more often if appropriate for the patient and family.

Other requirements include yearly continuing education provided by Encompass Honor Hospice. Interested in learning if this is the right fit for you? Contact Cindy Pincus, Volunteer Coordinator, at 303-940-9999 or cpincus@ehhi.com for more information about requirements, education, or other options.
