ORGANIZATION: Allina Health Hospice & Palliative Care

Allina Health Hospice & Palliative Care

What does it mean to become a companion to a hospice patient?

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!

Volunteers will visit patients in their own communities wherever they reside, which may be in their own homes or residential care facilities. Enjoy flexible hours and online training for your convenience, followed by a 1x interactive group wrap-up session in Minneapolis. Allina Health provides care to hospice patients in 33 counties throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
