Ways to Volunteer for Pathways

by in Blog, News, Services, Veterans July 11, 2019

Our volunteers have the biggest hearts and truly embody the mission of Pathways. We rely on more than 200 dedicated people to volunteer in almost every department. We’re always excited to grow our volunteer family, so if you have a passion for what we do, read on for more information on how to contribute.

Direct Patient Care

It takes a special person to be able to work directly with our patients. Different volunteer areas include companionship, caregiver relief, complementary therapies, and our life stories program. Sometimes our patients just need a friend to talk to. Each of these areas will allow you to impact the life of someone, making them feel cared for and loved in their last days.

Non-Clinical Support

If you would feel more comfortable with behind the scenes assistance, that’s great! We need help staffing our greeter desk, in the library, event support, and much more. Our volunteers in these areas are critical to the efficiency and impact that Pathways has. They provide so much support for both patients and their families, as well as the bereaved in our community.

Veteran Volunteers

At Pathways, we take special care to honor our community members who have served. We provide unique training to volunteers who work directly with our veteran patients and assign veteran volunteers to serve them. We have found that this creates a special bond, one that impacts both lives immensely.  Pathways works hard to acknowledge our veterans for their service to our country with a Recognition Team. This team provides certificates, pins, and service hats to all our current veteran patients. Our volunteers help with this as well as provide outreach at community veteran events throughout northern Colorado. To learn more about the veteran services we provide, click here.
