Playing bingo or cards, reading, or just sitting with a patient--every volunteer and patient dynamic is different. However, one thing that remains constant is the positive impact the relationship has on both parties. Learn more about becoming a Compassus volunteer and learn how, for one of our own, becoming a hospice volunteer meant learning more about living life: https://bit.ly/3mXDWe3

About Hospice Compassus

Location:

5005 Bowling St. Suite B, Cedar Rapids, IA 52404, US

Mission Statement

The Mission of Hospice Compassus is to honor life and offer hope to individuals facing a life-limiting illness by supporting them with compassion, integrity and excellence. We have offices in Davenport, Washington, Cedar Falls, and Cedar Rapids and see clients all over Eastern Iowa!

Description

Hospice offers peace and comfort to patients and their families by reducing the stress, pain and other symptoms of a serious illness. Hospice care includes medical, emotional, social and spiritual support.

Many believe hospice is only for the final days or hours of life. This is not true. Hospice is not about dying; it's about helping patients and their families live as well as they can when life expectancy is limited.
