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.

Volunteering with Hospice Compassus for the last 5 years has brought newfound meaning into my life. The time I spend with each patient varies, but every visit is always so full of love. I’ve developed better listening skills, an understanding and acceptance of my patients own feelings regarding death, as well as a strong comfort and support level. I have never felt under appreciated by my patients or their loved ones in addition to the Hospice Compassus staff, specifically my volunteer coordinator, Bill. I truly cherish the time spent with my patients and overtime they have become family.
