The mission to Compassus is to honor life and offer hope to individuals facing a life-limiting illness by supporting them and their families with compassion and dignity. Our focus is on pain management, comfort care and emotional and spiritual support.
Compassus has patients in communities throughout Delaware and Chester counties and we are looking for individuals who have an approved animal visitor (dog, cat, etc.) to visit terminally ill patients and their families to provide comfort, joy and companionship.
Pet therapy volunteers help by providing companionship and a social outlet to patients. Pet therapy handlers must produce documented evidence of annual reputable therapy pet organization membership and veterinary visits attesting to good behavior, good health and current vaccinations.
