Any pet owner will agree that the presence of a dog will warm the heart and inspire the spirit which is why Compassus hopsice is seeking friendly canines and handlers to join our volunteer team. Volunteers, along with their furry friends, would be fostering meaningful connections with patients in the Barry, Lawrence and Stone county areas that could benefit from pet therapy. The ideal volunteer is patient, compassionate and has a heart for the elderly and the dying.
For the protection of our patients all pets MUST be certified through an approved pet therapy certifying organization, such as Pet Partners, Therapy Dogs International, AKC Therapy Dog Program and Alliance of Therapy Dogs. We have information to help you get started if your dog isn't certified. In addition, human volunteers must complete our free training and complete a background check before seeing patients.
Profoundly advancing the well-being and honoring the dignity of those we serve, helping make the world a better place--one family at a time.
Compassus is a nationwide network of community-based hospice, palliative and home health care services. Our mission is to offer comfort and hope to patients and families facing serious illness. We support that mission with a commitment to three core values: compassion, integrity, and excellence.
We are a Nashville, Tennessee-based company founded in 2006 with roots in hospice reaching back to 1979. Today, we have more than 150 locations in 31 states across the U.S. Our goals are to provide the highest quality care in every community in which we serve and to be both the provider and employer of choice.
