Compassus Hospice seeks volunteers!

We are looking for people who are kind-hearted and compassionate seeking volunteer opportunities in Chester County specifically, the West Chester area.

As little as one hour a week or two to four hours a month is helpful, and arrangements can be customized to accommodate each volunteer’s personal schedule.

Hospice Volunteers are trained to support terminally ill individuals and their loved ones. Through your commitment, volunteers can impact patients in extraordinary ways. With an emphasis on living, hospice volunteers support and assist terminally ill individuals and help their loved ones cope with the challenges of life’s ending.

The wide variety of volunteer roles include; companionship volunteers, pet therapists, Reiki volunteers and administrative volunteers. Training will be provided to make sure each volunteer is given the instruction needed to guarantee a positive experience. Below is a list of current volunteer positions:

Bedside Volunteers - Visit with and support patients by playing music, writing letters or reading from a patient’s favorite book.

Alternative/Complementary Therapy Volunteers - Provide comfort and relaxation to patients using music, reiki, reflexology, massage, aromatherapy or pet therapy. These volunteers are professionally trained prior to joining the team. All pet therapy animals must be certified (we can guide you thourgh this process).

Administrative Volunteers - Assemble informational packets, file, perform data entry, and other clerical duties.
