April is a special time at Compassus, as we celebrate Volunteer Month, recognizing the invaluable contributions of our volunteers who are truly the heart of our programs. At Compassus, volunteers are essential not only to our patients and their families but to our entire team, enhancing our community with their dedication and care.

Among our extraordinary volunteers is Michelle Junk, a Massage Therapist from our Denver, Colorado program. Michelle embodies the spirit of volunteerism, utilizing her expert skills to provide pain relief and comfort to our patients. Her commitment extends beyond patient care as she recently led a session for fellow Compassus team members, emphasizing the importance of self-care for caregivers. This act of sharing not only soothes physical ailments but also nurtures a supportive work environment, highlighting the dual impact of our volunteers.

Our volunteers come from diverse backgrounds, each bringing unique skills that enrich the lives of those we serve. Whether it’s gardening, cooking, hairdressing, massage therapy, knitting, cosmetology, carpentry, photography, or music, each talent plays a critical role in our holistic care approach. These special skills offer more than just practical benefits; they bring joy, comfort, and a sense of normalcy to our patients during challenging times.

Are you interested in making a difference? We invite you to bring your special skills and compassion to Compassus. Volunteering with us is not just about giving time—it’s about sharing your heart and talents to make a profound impact on the lives of patients and their families.

Together, we can continue to make a significant impact in the lives of many, just as Michelle Junk and countless other volunteers do every day.
