ORGANIZATION: Compassus Hospice

  • Sing or Play Music? Bring enjoyment to those on Hospice in Peru and surrounding areas!
  • Do you enjoy music?
  • Do you like to sing?
  • Do play a musical instrument?
  • Can you play music using a smart phone or CD player?

YOU DON'T NEED A LOT OF TALENT! Just willing to give time to someone receiving hospice care. We appreciate a gifted musician, however, if you like to just play music or sing along you will still make a difference!

Music and singing bring comfort and companionship to all people but is so appreciated by those who are confined to their homes or a facility. They need you as a volunteer to provide enjoyment and a quality of life. Only an hour or two a week makes a difference in people’s lives.

We will train and support you every step of the way! Volunteers meet all sorts of people in hospice and each has a story and different circumstances. You will learn so much on how to enjoy the time you spend with them!
