The Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program pairs veteran volunteers with our veteran hospice patients. Veteran volunteers are important because of their ability to form a camaraderie with veteran patients, helping to eliminate the stoicism and secrecy which often comes from having served in the armed forces.
Veteran Volunteers can help by:
Assisting veterans in reminiscing/telling life stores Educate and assist patients in receiving veteran benefits Conduct pinning ceremonies or distribute certificates for Veteran's Day and other recognition events Improve communication with families Provide respite for caregiviers Read to patients

The mission of Compassus is to honor life and offer hope to individuals facing a life-limiting illness by supporting them with compassion, integrity and excellence.
The Hospice promise is to provide dignity to our patients and families. Hospice care is an aggressive approach to pain and symptom control as well as addressing the emotional and spirtual needs of the dying. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death. Hospice Compassus seeks to enable patients to carry on an alert, pain-free life and manage other symptoms so their last days may be spent with dignity and quality of life.
