  • 1 person is interested

Compassus Hospice is looking for compassionate volunteers to visit hospice patients in assisted living communities and nursing homes in Southern Maine. As a Hospice Volunteer, your role may be as simple as reading a book or newspaper, listening to music, attending an activity, taking a walk, or holding a hand.

The heart of volunteering in hospice is simply enjoying each others company; time both you and your patient will find rewarding, uplifting, and inspiring. Volunteer placement and time is planned for your convenience.

In September, we will be holding training classes over the course of 3 weeks, 2 sessions per week, from 5-7:30pm. If you would be interested in joining the training course, please contact our office for more information!
