We are seeking volunteers that live in Fairfield and New Haven counties. Compassus volunteers make a positive difference in the lives of our patients. As we serve a vast area of Connecticut, we match volunteers with patients close to their home. Many of our patients live in skilled nursing facilities, but we also care for those being cared for in their private homes. Volunteers help our patients by providing them support through simple companionship, writing letters on their behalf, reading to them, playing music, watching TV, applying lotion to their hands, and most importantly listening to their life story. We ask that our volunteers commit to working at least two hours a month. Volunteers may make their visits flexible to fit their schedule Monday-Sunday during the hours of 9:00am-6:00pm. The length of visit times will vary depending on the needs of the patients.
Please give our office a call or send an email for further information.
