A Little Time - A Profound Impact

Are you looking for a rewarding experience to "give back"? Compassus Hospice is in need of caring volunteers to see patients in the Cleveland, Ohio area. No hospice experience is required. Free 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).

If you would like to learn more about becoming a hospice volunteer or if you're ready to share your time and talents, please contact Tanya Gustafson, MSW LSW at 440.899.7659. Patients are located in several Cuyahoga County facilities.

Compassus Hospice provides culturally sensitive care to all ethnicities and religions.
