Hospice Compassus

On November 14th, Jim invited Jill Venden from Hospice Compassus to join our meeting and present information on her organization.
Hospice Compassus is a Hospice and Palliative Care group that serves Davenport, Cedar Falls, Cedar Rapids and Washington communities.  Jill is the Volunteer Coordinator and states her 3 areas where she can use volunteers is with:
-          Social interaction
-          Administrative work
-          Enrichment activities
Each volunteer goes through training that focuses on 8 areas.  Some examples of these areas are:
-          History
-          Diagnosis
-          Regulatory
-          Faith/spiritual backgrounds
There is also a program (We Honor Veterans certification) specifically for veteran volunteers working with veteran patients. 

Thank you Jill for sharing all this great information with us!
