Hospice Compassus has a wonderful group of veteran volunteers who work in several capacities. Some are assigned to patients, others help with clerical tasks, there are those who are claimed by the bereavement counselor and others are there to be with patients in their final hours. Among the veterans are: (front, from left) Shawn Prince, Ilona Swenson, Janine Cluck, Patti Harris, Terry Broce, Margie Thompson, John Trask, (back, from left) Dick Brubaker, Joyce Walters, Peggy Malecha, Kathy Salvaggio, Ida Lampert, Phil Prince and Dennis Thompson.

The special work of Hospice Compassus, making the last months of life filled with comfort and tenderness, would not be possible without a dedicated group of volunteers. Thirty-one men and women, both full-time and seasonal residents, work with the medical and other professionals at Hospice Compassus to ease the last of life’s journey for both patients and their families. Between them, these volunteers have almost a century of experience in this very extraordinary field.
