We are seeking volunteers that would be able to visit our patients in Fairfield, New Haven, Litchfield, Middlesex, Tolland, and Hartford Counties. Compassus volunteers make a positive difference in the lives of our patients.

As we serve a vast area of Connecticut, we match volunteers with patients close to their home. Many of our patients live in skilled nursing facilities, but we also serve those being cared for in their private homes.
Volunteers help our patients by providing them support through simple companionship, reading to them, playing music, watching TV, and most importantly listening to their life story.
We ask that our volunteers commit to working at least two hours a month. Volunteers may make their visits flexible to fit their schedule Monday-Sunday during the hours of 8:00am-8:00pm. The length of visit times will vary depending on the needs of the patients.

WE ARE IN SPECIAL NEED OF PET THERAPISTS, MUSIC THERAPIST, MUSICIANS, LICENSED HAIRSTYLIST/BARBER, AND LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPISTS WHO CAN SHARE THEIR TALENTS WITH OUR PATIENTS.

WE ARE ALSO IN NEED OF PEOPLE WHO WOULD KNIT/CROCHET PRAYER SHAWLS AND/OR BLANKETS FOR OUR PATIENTS.

Description

Compassus Hospice & Palliative Care provides for the end-of-life needs of the patients we care for. Our main office is located in Milford, CT. We serve those who are eligible for hospice care who reside in Fairfield County, New Haven County and Middlesex County. Hospice Compassus provides end-of-life care to those who wish to be under the care of hospice and who met the criteria. Hospice is for those whose life expectancy is six months or less. Our team is experienced in meeting the end-of-life needs of the patients with whom we work. Our goal is to provide compassionate care, psychosocial support, companionship, spiritual support and comfort to our patients to enhance the quality of their lives, remain comfortable and to die with dignity. With our patients and their loved ones, our team develops a comprehensive plan of care to best manage the patient's symptoms, values and wishes.

We believe that every moment of life is meaningful. We want our patients to live to their fullest abilities and enjoy their remaining time at the end of their lives. Our volunteers help us achieve this. Our volunteers are compassionate, caring individuals who offer our patients socialization, stimulation and companionship, as well as giving respite to our patients' loved ones.
