Seamstress, Quilters and More! ? What If You Could Help Mend A Broken Heart?

Save to Favorites

Compassus Hospice

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 5 people are interested

If you could help comfort a broken heart with a needle and thread, would you? Compassus Hospice is in need of crafty individuals who are interested in creating quilts for our patients. Each patient on our Hospice service is provided a blanket from Compassus.

We would also like to introduce a new quilt for our Vets that looks like a US Flag. This will be presented to the patient during a pinning ceremony. Pinning ceremonies are one last final tribute that Compassus provides to acknowledge the service and sacrifices the Veteran has made to our country, and their family. This quilt can also be hung as a tapestry, which means this quilt does not require backing or a filling material that might be found in a typical quilt. Because this is a new idea, there are no particular requirements for the size of the quilt. Although I have a rough idea it would be about 40" x 60". All of the fabric will be provided to you.

Whether you sew, quilt, or just want to help out, we invite you to come join this new and rewarding Volunteer Opportunity!

Sewing can be done at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home and using your own sewing machine. This is a perfect way to make a huge difference in your community without ever leaving your own home.

"Words do not describe how grateful we are for this blanket that we received. Not only is the blanket beautiful it is also a reminder of the sacrifices my husband has made for his country." -Carol M.

Mission Statement

The Colleagues of Compassus Hospice 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.
