If you have a caring heart and want to provide comfort, companionship and support for someone at the end of life, this could be the opportunity for you. Compassus Hospice is looking for volunteers to spend a little time each week with a patient. Our patients live in their own homes, assisted living facilities and nursing homes. Do you have an hour a week to share with someone? You can spend time doing exactly what the patient wants to do- go outside, paint, color, garden, read, talk or listen to music to name a few. Volunteers are an important component of the hospice team and the rewards for both the volunteer and the patient/family can be numerous. Does this type of volunteer opportunity speak to your heart?
To learn how you can share your gifts, email Kim Iannacci at Kimberly.Iannacci@compassus.com or call 978 777-8222.

Our service area includes Newburyport down to Revere, Ayer, Westford, Lowell, Haverhill, Salem, Malden, Medford, Stoneham, Peabody, Andover/N. Andover, Chelmsford, Wilmington and Billerica to name just some of the towns.
Compassus Hospice volunteers play a vital role in carrying out our mission to preserve each patient’s dignity while removing the fear associated with dying. Individuals who are 18 and older who are willing to share one to four hours per week are encouraged to apply to our program. Serving as a volunteer will enrich your own life in ways you can’t begin to imagine.
No previous experience in the medical field is necessary, and you will be prepared for your role with a free, comprehensive training program. This training will help you learn how to provide emotional support, companionship and respite care to patients and families.
