Hospice Patient Volunteer
11 people are interested
Compassus Hospice & Palliative is looking for hospice volunteers in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. All hospice volunteers receive free training and then can choose how much time they can give and location preferences. Whether you can volunteer for as little as a few hours a month, or six hours per week, all efforts are appreciated and needed!
We have many on-going programs to choose from:
- Friendly Visits - companionship with patients
- Respite Visits - relief to caregivers
- Angel Watch - sit with the patients during their last hours (No One Dies Alone)
- Memory Bears & Quilts - we really need quilters and knitters!
- Flower Arranging and Delivery
Our patients love to have a volunteer read a passage from their favorite book, play music or listen to their life stories. Sometimes the volunteer is the last friend our patients will have and we have a wonderful team to help support you every step of the way.
Feel free to contact us for more information. We'd love to tell you all about our services!

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.
Listening to a hospice patient's story or reading a passage of their favorite book can enrich the life of a hospice patient. Whether you volunteer behind the scenes at our local office or one-on-one with families, you will be joining fellow volunteers who are helping others navigate life's closing chapters. After completing our free training, volunteers choose how much time they can give. Whether you volunteer a few hours a month or six hours a week, all efforts are appreciated and needed.

Companionship and Friendly Visits
Relief to Caregivers
Angel Visits - "No One Dies Alone"
We Honor Vets - Vet2Vet Program
Memory Bears and Quilts

Life Review Interviews with Video
