About

Members of the Compassion Team includes people from all walks of life who help insure that no patient dies alone. As part of our mission to provide excellence in clinical care, Compasison Team members are a presence at the bedside as a patient is actively transitioning. Some of the beautiful activities you can be involved in include being a presence in the room so the family can have some space and a break and providing emotional support for the family as they grieve. Compassion Team members also connect with the families after the death to offer additonal support and care when many others family members and friends have begun getting back to their own lives. In addition to your presence, hospice nurses and staff including the Chaplain and Bereavement Coordinators are also there at a moment's notice to support the patient and family through this difficult time.

No prior hospice, medical or even volunteer training required. All vigil volunteers will receive formal, specialized training and orientation from the volunteer manager.
