Compassus Hospice is looking for compassionate people to brighten the days of our patients who reside in private homes, nursing homes, and assisted-living facilities around the Chester and Delaware county areas.
Volunteer fills the gap between loved ones and professional caregivers. Volunteers are there even when friends and family find it hard to do so. They visit on a schedule, yet are open to change as dictated by the patient’s health and interests. Volunteers are unpaid, yet priceless.
Please contact us if you're interested in volunteering for this very rewarding and life affirming experience.
