Helping Hands and Hearts

Volunteer with patient

Each day our care teams are joined by specially trained volunteers who step with grace and compassion into the lives of patients and families in need. They offer patients the gift of time -- a presence in the room, a friend to talk to, a hand to hold. They provide respite to exhausted family members.

The gift of their time and touch make a huge difference. This is a difference you can make, too.

The Gift of Time

We have 250 trained volunteers who give their time to support our patients and care teams, and help our office teams with the work that runs our business at Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care and Pikes Peak Hospice Foundation.

How You Can Help

Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care and Pikes Peak Hospice Foundation offer a variety of volunteer opportunities. And, we prepare our volunteers to serve with a comprehensive orientation program, continuing education and ongoing support. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please complete our Volunteer Application. If you prefer, contact us or call 719-633-3400 and ask to speak with Volunteer Services.

We look forward to hearing from you!

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
