More Volunteer Positive Moments

We are in uncharted waters and typically volunteers are deployed to help.  Now they are being asked to continue to stay at home.  This is the case for many of our awesome volunteers at Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care.

So what are voluteers currently doing?  Calling patients to offer support, sending notes, cards and drawings, making Zoom calls and singing, grocery shopping, dropping items off at patients, sewing, making masks, blankets, busy mats, neck pillows and more!

Thanks to Lori's daughter for the beautiful drawing.  And to Scott and Susan for shopping and delivering needed items to our patients to their front door.    

     

What Our Families Say

What you all do is amazing.  Thank you for all your help, support and guidance for my mother and family.  It was such a gift and a blessing to be with my mom and take care of her and to have her at home with my daughter and I.  We will never forget your kindness.  Thank you! ~ Patient's family

The services my husband and I received during his last stages of life were invaluable to us.  His primary wish at the end was to be at home.  I was very afraid that I couldn't grant that wish, but with the help of Pikes Peak Hospice he was able to be at home, where he was comfortable, until the very end.  I am also truly thankful for the grief counseling that you provided to me. ~ Patient's wife

Thank you for all your assistance during this time and for the care of my mother.  There are not enough compliments to give for the support, knowledge, bedside manner, courtesy and kindness. ~ Patient's daughter
