ORGANIZATION: Allina Health Hospice & Palliative Care

Honoring our Veterans
We honor our Veterans.

Our veteran volunteers have the opportunity to become a companion to another veteran who is now a hospice patient - what does that entail?

Really it’s all about giving your attentive presence to another - you focus on your assigned patient to be a "companion". We’re looking for people with big hearts, who are good listeners, and okay with just being quiet sometimes and sitting with a patient too. We request that you have approximately 1-3 hours per week available whenever assigned to a patient, have good personal boundaries and the ability to keep all visits confidential. Our volunteers repeatedly tell us and others, they’ve gained so much more from this volunteer work than they have ever given. You may offer companionship, help with errands, provide respite to caregivers, assist with writing/reading and answer other patient and family needs. At end of life your support is greatly appreciated by our staff and those we serve!

Allina Health's hospice program is a "We Honor Vet's" Level 4 Hospice and we are building upon this commitment to honor and support our veterans at end of life.
