About

Compassus Hospice and Palliative Care offers unique opportunities to share your heart and talents and make a difference for others at a sacred and special time in their lives.

Volunteers say that the personal benefits of personal and spiritual growth -- including a deeper appreciation for life -- are a natural outgrowth of this special work.

Requirements: At least 18 years of age. Able to commit to visiting once a week (exceiptions OK) and volunteer for at least one year.

Some ways that hospice volunteers make a difference in the lives of patients and their families:

  • provide companionship (reading, playing or singing music, listening to life stories, playing cards, artwork and most importantly, being a caring presence)
  • share your pets
  • play music and share your musical talents
  • provide alternative therapies, such as massage, aromatherapy, music, art and pet therapy
  • assist in the hospice office
  • craft blankets and other special items

Volunteers are the soul and heart of hospice. Please join us!
