Caring Volunteers Needed for Hospice Patients
43 people are interested
Are you looking for a rewarding experience to "give back"? Compassus Hospice is in need of caring volunteers to see patients in the Western Mass Area--especially East Longmeadow, Holyoke, Westfield, Chicopee, Springfield, Amherst and Hadley areas. No hospice experience is required. Hospice training is provided!
Most of our volunteers provide companionship visits: reading to our patients, painting finger nails, praying, playing music, attending facility activities, playing games or cards, crafts, looking at flowers outside, holding their hand, sitting with them at mealtimes, etc... Some of our volunteers with special interests and training share their talents with our patients (massage therapy, music therapy, and veteran-to-veteran volunteering).
Contact us today to see if we could be a great fit for what you are looking for!
Thank you for considering giving your precious time to our hospice patients!
We'll work with your schedule.
