Our Lady of Peace Home, Hospice and Home Care (OLP) is a free-care hospice providing care to children and adults. OLP is in need of companion volunteers to visit with people at our residential hospice location in St. Paul, MN and/or community locations throughout the metro area. Volunteering hours are flexible and can fit with most schedules. This is a great opportunity for people over age 18.
Companion volunteers visit with patient(s). Visits may include conversations, listening to stories, life review, or words of wisdom, looking though photo albums, reading the newspaper or a favorite book, go for walks, create crafts, listening to music, etc.
Volunteers may be assigned to specific patient(s), or if volunteering at the residential hospice location, may be able to do companion "shifts" and visit patients room to room.
Our patients and their loved ones look forward to visiting with their volunteers. Companionship is an important part of the care we offer patients and is only possible because of volunteers like you. Thank you!
