Have you always wanted to support patients and families but weren't sure how to help? Compassus Palliative and Hospice Care will provide you the training and support to make a true difference in the lives of others.


Visit patients and families at home, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, inpatient hospice units. Pay a friendly visit; relieve a family caregiver for an afternoon out; read aloud; listen to memories; walk the dog; be the high point of someone’s day.

Hospice is about giving comfort and hope and improving quality of life during an individual's last months of life. If you have a heart full of compassion, we would love to speak with you about visiting some of our patients.

All volunteers are provided a comprehensive training and orientation with opportunities to meet and talk with other volunteers!
