Compassus Hospice and Palliative Care is seeking kind and caring licensed massage therapists to provide extremely light touch massage to hospice patients.

We are looking for massage therapist volunteers to make visits to our patients in and around San Antonio, to provide relaxation and pain relief through massage. There is no need to bring a massage table-the patient is in a hospital bed or chair and fully clothed. You must be a licensed massage therapist in the State of Texas. A free mandatory comprehensive hospice volunteer training is provided to you.

This opportunity also applies to our staff! If you would like to give back to the amazing nurses, aides, social workers, and chaplains who deliver this care we can set up a massage clinic for our staff.

If you are interested in providing this tender touch to our patients, and being part of their life's last journey, please inquire to learn more about this flexible and rewarding opportunity.

Mission Statement

The Colleagues of Hospice Compassus 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.

Description

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.

At Compassus, we believe that every life is unique and deserves a meaningful and personal final journey. Perhaps you’ve experienced hospice services with a member of your family, or are looking for a meaningful way to volunteer your time. If you believe that giving your time can enhance the lives of others, we encourage you to explore volunteer opportunities with Compassus.
