Patient Visitor Volunteer
- A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
23 people are interested
You will visit a patient in his or her home, a nursing facility, assisted living res idence. Often you will provide respite for the caregiver, along with social and emotional support for the patient. If the patient is able, during these visits you may share common bonds as hobbies and chats about places the patient holds dear. It could be a simple game of cards, watching a television show together or simply holding a patient's hand so that they know they are not alone. The stories and the situations are different every time a new patient and volunteer come together. As time goes on, we have seen our patients and volunteers become best friends and "adopt" each other.

The Colleagues of Compassus Hospice are committed to keeping The Hospice Promise by delivering the highest quality of care, serving the needs of patients and families and spreading the stories of hospice to those with whom they come into contact.
Most volunteers feel personally rewarded through offering their time, energy and compassion when they see how much they are able to help patients and families. Further benefits frequently experienced by our volunteers include:
- Greater self-knowledge from insights gained from relationships with patients, their families and from the hospice volunteer training.
- Spiritual growth from supporting a person through the final days while increasing the awareness of their own sense of spiritual values.
The people that make up Compassus are dedicated to compassionate care, clinical excellence and providing comfort and support to patients and their families with end-of-life issues. This includes our volunteers.
