Compassus Hospice & Palliative Care seeks volunteers of all ages who are kind-hearted and compassionate. We are looking specifically for individuals and organizations to participate in our engaging volunteer program. Volunteers are trained to support terminally ill individuals and their loved ones. Training will be provided to make sure each volunteer is given the instructions needed to guarantee a positive experience. Hospice Volunteers serve in their own community on a schedule that fits their availability.

Non-medical hospice volunteers may:

  • Make friendly visits to the patient's home or care center
  • Provide companionship and a listening ear
  • Provide a break for caregivers
  • Help with tasks in the office
