Mission Statement

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 with whom they come into contact.

Description

Most volunteers feel personally rewarded through offering their time, energy and compassion when they see how much they are able to help patients and families. Further benefits frequently experienced by our volunteers include:

  • Greater self-knowledge from insights gained from relationships with patients, their families and from the hospice volunteer training.
  • Spiritual growth from supporting a person through the final days while increasing the awareness of their own sense of spiritual values.

The people that make up Compassus are dedicated to compassionate care, clinical excellence and providing comfort and support to patients and their families with end-of-life issues. This includes our volunteers.

At Compassus, we believe that every life is unique and deserves a meaningful and personal final journey. Perhaps you’ve experienced hospice services with a member of 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 encourage you to explore volunteer opportunities with Compassus.

Would you recommend Hospice Compassus?

I would like to thank Skyler Vanderhoof for giving me the guidance when beginning my Hospice journey. Him along with everyone I've met, Soledad, were amazing. I can see how personable and compassionate they are and it definitely uplifts my spirit. I wish you guys the best and couldn't have asked for a better team to have worked with. While at Hospice, I had the opportunity to meet such great people and have even made long term friends. I will miss being able to ask the patient how they are and hearing their side of the story, who they are, and words of wisdom. Being a hospice volunteer reminded me of how we should respect and care for one another and one by one be able to make life changing decisions to better ourselves. It is as simple as listening and can definitely be rewarding. I would love to recommend anyone to volunteer, any little bit helps.

I have been volunteering for Hospice Compassus for two months. I go in about 2 to 3 times every week, and I love it! I needed community service hours for an honor society I am a part of, and I wanted something that would look good on my resume for nursing school. I am so glad that Hospice Compassus needed help! The office is very laid back. There is no pressure to meet a minimum amount of volunteer hours, no uniform to buy, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Skyler Vanderhoof is the volunteer coordinator, and he goes above and beyond to take care of his volunteers. He is an enthusiastic leader who makes volunteering fun. I am a currently a full time student so I was worried about committing my time else where, but Skyler assured me that school comes first, and I can come in whenever I am free for as long (or short) as I feel comfortable with. I would highly recommend volunteering for Compassus.

My name is Mary and I am applying to a Physician Assistant program this year. I wanted to add volunteering to my resume so I began searching and found Hospice Compassus through volunteermatch.org. I was a little nervous about volunteering in hospice until I met Skyler, my volunteer coordinator, who quickly put my worries at ease. He took the time to consider not only my schedule but also my personality before he matched me with a family. Skyler was able to find the perfect family for me to volunteer with and I couldn’t be happier! In a short amount of time I have been able to gain over 20 hours of volunteer experience as well as a few new friends that I have now become very close to. I highly recommend volunteering with Hospice Compassus, I can say that it has changed my life and I know that it will do the same for you. Sincerely, Mary
