Preparing You to Serve

Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care provides care and support for more than 1,600 dying patients and their families each year. Your presence -- either being with patients and their loved ones directly or working behind the scenes in our offices -- can change their experience.

It is an extraordinary commitment, which we meet with one of our own:  to provide the training and support you need to feel comfortable and to succeed. 

Our volunteer program begins with 20 hours of comprehensive training on what it means to work with the dying, and how we uniquely care for them at Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care. Topics include patient care, communication, family dynamics, the dying process, bereavement, and much more. Volunteers are then mentored in the area where they choose to work. The commitment continues with regular continuing education.
