Project Details
Our Mission Statement

Halcyon Hospice & Palliative Care is a nonprofit, in-home hospice serving patients throughout Colorado. All hospice related training and requirements are provided by Halcyon Hospice.

Art and Activities assistant volunteers help our patients to continue enjoying their favorite activities and Arts & crafts in group settings and at beside. There are a variety of ways that volunteers assist with this. Some patients want company to have coffee and chat with, or to be read to, or to sit in the courtyard or go for walks with, or they need help painting their nails, or writing a letter, some want a volunteer to sit with them and assist at group activities like bingo, arts & crafts, book club, or socials. The opportunities are endless!

This is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to gain experience in activity management, hospice or healthcare, social work, nursing, chaplaincy, or geriatrics. Our volunteers become part of our hospice team, gaining knowledge and confidence in the healthcare field. The position is truly a great way to make a difference in someone's life and brighten their day.
