Compassus is leading the transformation of healthcare delivery: continuously and measurably improving the quality of person-centered, physician-driven, team-based care. The Colleagues of Hospice 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 whom they come into contact. Our goal is to provide the greatest possible comfort and care for those who experience one of life’s most intimate and challenging moments. Serving your community with heartfelt compassion since: 2007
At Hospice Compassus, we believe that every life is unique and reserves a meaningful and personal final journey. Perhaps you've experienced the services of hospice in your family, or are looking for a meaningful way to volunteer your time. If you believe that giving your time can enhance the lives of others, we would like you to explore volunteer opportunities with Hospice Compassus. Hospice Compassus is always about patient first, always.
This organization has a really great volunteering program. It enables volunteers to do meaningful work in communities that need it. I found that Compassus cares about the experience of the volunteer. They want to make sure that you are a good fit for the patient and that you can volunteer at times that are convenient for you as well as the patient. They try to match you with patients who have similar interests and hobbies. I have found that caregivers also really appreciate volunteers because they help ease the burdens of full-time care. There are required background checks and medical tests, which take about 2 to 4 weeks total before you can begin volunteering.
I was looking for a volunteer position that involved one on one interaction and I ended up with a position through Hospice in a nursing home. I really enjoy the work, feel like I make a difference every timeI go. The schedule is quite flexible and the folks at the main office are very supportive and thankful. Solid program!
