We are looking for Companionship volunteers to spend a little time with our patients. You can spend time with someone chatting, reading, listening to music, taking a walk or playing a game. It is a very rewarding way to spend a little time each week. A variety of locations and nursing facilities to choose from. Hours are very flexible and training is provided. Patients and families often tell us that hospice volunteers are a treasure!

Other ways to help:

Administrative volunteers assist hospice staff, typically in the office. Ways to help include:

  • Copying, faxing, filing and other light office work
  • Sending birthday cards, sympathy cards, thinking of you cards
  • Making deliveries
Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteers

Compassus is proud to participate in the We Honor Veterans program. Many of our locations provide trained veteran volunteers who offer camaraderie and compassionate care for fellow veterans. Our veteran-to-veteran volunteers understand the unique needs of veterans because they ARE veterans.



Even if you just have a few hours a month, we would love to have you join our amazing team!!
