Do you have an hour a week to share your heart with a person at the end of life? Are you looking for a rewarding way to spend a little time each week? Compassus Hospice is looking for compassionate, caring individuals who would like to be Companion Volunteers. Our volunteers spend their time visiting patients engaging in whatever activity the patients would like to do, such as walking outside, listening to music, reading, chatting, reminiscing or playing a game.

If this speaks to your heart, call Kim Iannacci, Volunteer Coordinator for more information. 978 777-8222 or email at Kimberly.Iannacci@compassus.com. We provide full training and orientation and we request a committment of at least 6 months and 1 hour a week.

You can make a difference in someone's life!

Mission Statement

At Compassus Hospice, our mission is to preserve each patient’s dignity while removing the fear associated with dying through pain management, emotional and spiritual support. We deliver our care services wherever our patients call home, whether that home is a private home, an apartment, an assisted living community, a skilled nursing center or, in some cases, a hospital. 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.

Description

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.
