ORGANIZATION: Compassus Hospice

  • 380 people are interested

Read aloud to someone you may never meet! Read something special to you - a poem, short story, essay, or even a work of classic literature.

We will find a way to connect our patients to your face, voice, and a book of interest.
You might read, make a remark, ask a question, pause for reflection.

If you act or love to read aloud, this may be perfect for you.

Many of elders have never forgotten how lovely it is to be read to.
Although this is strictly a one-way communication, we hope to expand our program in the near future to enable a shared experience.

Training will be provided online.

Mission Statement

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.
