There are times when our amazing volunteers have personal things come up in their life. If they are scheduled to see a patient, and cannot make their visit-that is where you come in! If you are looking to give back, but cannot commit to a regular scheduled meeting every week, we are always looking for "on call" volunteers to fill in the gaps if our regular scheduled volunteers cannot make a visit. Most of our volunteers help with things such as end of life projects, socialization, and just being a friend to our patients. When you are asked to fill in for an absent volunteer you will get any and all information on what a patient likes to do so you are well prepared to go visit them. If you are interested in becoming a regular volunteer with us, please look at our other opportunities!

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. Perhaps you’ve experienced hospice services with a member of your family, or are looking for a meaningful way to volunteer your time. If you believe that giving your time can enhance the lives of others, we encourage you to explore volunteer opportunities with Compassus.
