Are you a compassionate and caring individual? Hospice patients in Grafton, Port Washington and Cedarburg area are in need of your company. They need some one who has time to sit and visit 1 to 2 hours once a week. Some may like to play card games, bingo, write letters, do puzzles while others just need someone to talk with or read to them.

Many people on hospice are lonely or bored and a visit from someone who cares can make all the difference in the world for them. They just your companionship.

We will train and support you on this journey of caring to help people to live the best life in the limited time they have left.

Mission Statement

OUR MISSION The Colleagues of 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. OUR PHILOSOPHY Compassus recognizes death as a natural part of the life cycle, and promotes pain relief and symptom management as appropriate clinical goals. Compassus affirms life and provides hospice interventions that will seek neither to hasten death nor to postpone it. Compassus understands that psychosocial and spiritual pain is often as significant as physical pain, and that addressing all three requires the skills of an interdisciplinary team. Compassus believes that patients and loved ones are an integral part of our Plan of Care. OUR CORE VALUES: Compassion, Integrity and Excellence

Description

Hospice is much more than nursing care. It focuses on the person, rather than the disease, offering a comprehensive level of care - assuring that physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs are met.

Ultimately, hospice is not about dying. It is about helping people live as well as they can when life expectancy is limited. It is also about surrounding the patient’s family with care and support following the end of the patient’s life in order to help them through their healing journey.
