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!

Ensuring patients receive compassionate, end-of-life care that honors the spirit within is our priority at Compassus Hospice & Palliative Care. Above all else, we believe that hospice is about inspiring life...it's about enabling people to live their last months to the fullest until the very last day. We are motivated by a deep commitment to providing quality of life through dignity, comfort and peace. Our goal is to empower our patients to live as fully and comfortably as possible, while offering support and guidance to the grieving.
Hospice is a philosophy of care - not a place. At Compassus Hospice & Palliative Care, we deliver our care services wherever our patients call home, whether that home is a private home, an apartment, an assisted living community, a skilled nursing center or, in some cases, a hospital.
