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!

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.
