Join Our Hospice Volunteer Team!
Compassus Hospice and Palliative Care is currently looking for people around Delaware County, PA to participate in our volunteer program. Just a few hours per week makes a difference in someone's life.
Compassus serves patients in assisted livings, nursing homes, or in their own homes.
