During these uncertain times, how can we help?

The Colleagues of Compassus are committed to keeping The Hospice Promise by delivering the highest quality of care, serving the needs of patients and families and spreading the stories of hospice to those with whom they come into contact. OUR PHILOSOPHY Compassus recognizes death as a natural part of the life cycle, and promotes pain relief and symptom management as appropriate clinical goals. Compassus affirms life and provides hospice interventions that will seek neither to hasten death nor to postpone it. Compassus understands that psychosocial and spiritual pain is often as significant as physical pain, and that addressing all three requires the skills of an interdisciplinary team. Compassus believes that patients and loved ones are an integral part of our Plan of Care.
Listening to a hospice patient's story or reading a passage of their favorite book can enrich the life of a hospice patient. Whether you volunteer behind the scenes at our local office or one-on-one with families, you will be joining fellow volunteers who are helping others navigate life's closing chapters. After completing our free training, volunteers choose how much time they can give. Whether you volunteer a few hours a month or six hours a week, all efforts are appreciated and needed. Some of our programs include:
Companionship and Friendly Visits
Relief to Caregivers
Angel Visits - "No One Dies Alone"
We Honor Vets - Vet2Vet Program
Memory Bears and Quilts
