Do you have an hour or two a week to share your heart with someone at the end of life? Do you want a rewarding way to spend a little time each week? Compassus Hospice is looking for compassionate, caring individuals who would like to visit our patients as Companion Volunteers. These volunteers engage in whatever activities their patient wants to, such as taking a walk outside, reading, doing puzzles, chatting, reminiscing or listening to music.
If this opportunity speaks to your heart, call or email Kim Iannacci, Volunteer Coordinator for more information. 978-777-9222, Kimberly.Iannacci@compassus.com.
You CAN make a difference in someone's life!
