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:
- 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!
