If you are compassionate, caring, loving and have a calling for helping others, becoming a hospice volunteer might be the perfect opportunity for you! Compassus Hospice service area encompasses Berks & Schuylkill counties.

YOU volunteer in YOUR community close to home!
'Care for who I am' is our promise to our patients, families, staff AND VOLUNTEERS!

Our volunteers give their time and talent to support patients and caregivers in a critical time of their life journey. One on one time with patients can afford volunteers the opportunity to make new friends as they hear life stories and learn new cultures, faiths and/or generational values. Volunteers time and time again express that they receive more than they give.

Respite time for the caregiver is a precious gift volunteers can provide as well. Given the need, volunteers can arrange to stay with a patient while the caregiver receives much needed 'me' time or takes care of errands, doctor appointments or shopping.
*Note: Hospice volunteers DO NOT do any 'hands on' care such as toileting, transferring, feeding or ambulating patients. Volunteers are strictly FRIENDLY VISITORS!

Some of our volunteers join our team with hospice experience through a loved one. Others desire to pay forward. Whichever the case may be we are prepared to provide comprehensive training and orientation as well as continued support through your hospice volunteer experience.

IF you have a desire to serve or just want to learn more, we would love to connect with you.
Please reach out today!

Mission Statement

The Compassus brand promise, Care for who I am, reflects its unique care delivery model, which focuses on each person as an individual as well as a patient, to improve their quality of life in a meaningful way. Compassus recognizes those for who they are as an individual and not being defined by their illness.


Compassus Hospice is looking for volunteers to support our patients and staff in a variety of ways. Office volunteers assemble packets make copies, do computer work and make phone calls. Patient care volunteers make visits to patients providing companionship and comfort as well as offer much deserved respite to caregivers. Bereavement volunteers befriend those left behind through friendly phone calls and guided visits from our Bereavement Coordinator. Specialty volunteers offer a gamut of services including pet therapy, art therapy, Reiki therapy, massage therapy, Memory Bear - grief support item created from the patient's clothing -, and interns. Where ever your interest or talent lies, we can find a niche for you to invest in our hospice volunteer program!
