We have many families that only speak Spanish, so we are looking for bilingual volunteers. Most volunteers feel personally rewarded through their offering of time, energy and compassion when they see how much they are able to help patients and families during end of life care. Our patient care volunteers will provide companionship and support to patients and their families with things such as: Friendly visits, Writing letters, Reading to patients, and finishing any end of life activities. Whatever your strengths or interests may be you can make a difference in the life of our patients and their family. Most volunteers give one hour per week, but you can give as much or as little as you can. We place you with a patient that is close to your home and works with your schedule.

The Colleagues of Hospice Compassus are committed to keeping The Hospice Promise by delivering the highest quality of care, serving the needs of patients and families and spreading the stories of hospice to those with whom they come into contact.
Most volunteers feel personally rewarded through offering their time, energy and compassion when they see how much they are able to help patients and families. Further benefits frequently experienced by our volunteers include:
Greater self-knowledge from insights gained from relationships with patients, their families and from the hospice volunteer training.
Spiritual growth from supporting a person through the final days while increasing the awareness of their own sense of spiritual values.
The people that make up Compassus are dedicated to compassionate care, clinical excellence and providing comfort and support to patients and their families with end-of-life issues. This includes our volunteers.
At Compassus, we believe that every life is unique and deserves a meaningful and personal final journey.

If you believe that giving your time can enhance the lives of others, we encourage you to explore volunteer opportunities with Compassus.
