Compassus Hospice offers undergraduate human service and family service internship opportunities throughout Bergen, Passaic, Morris, Essex and Sussex counties. Interns are trained to provide physical, psychosocial, and spiritual support to the hospice patient and family. Interns visit with our patients to provide socialization, companionship, respite care, and helping caregivers with errands. As an integral member of the hospice interdisciplinary team, the intern’s interventions relieve patients’ symptoms of depression and anxiety by offering interactive music, reading to patients, leisure activities and expressive art and writing activities. In addition to patient care, intern’s responsibilities often include volunteer recruitment, program planning and community outreach activities. Our interns work in the office as well as in the field to provide support to both the staff and our patients.
To us, hospice care is not about the end of life, it is about inspiring life - making each moment meaningful.
