About

Brookdale Hospice is looking for a compassionate volunteer to visit with hospice patients in the West Metro. Locations include Minnetonka, Wayzata, Plymouth, and Eden Prairie.

Our Hospice Volunteers are some of the most important parts of our patients care. Many times hospice patients just want to have a good conversation with someone who is not involved in their medical or family situation.

Our current volunteers say this is one of the most rewarding experiences of their lives, because they get to help the patient enjoy their remaining days.

Unlike many hospice settings, Brookdale Hospice is smaller in size. Our volunteers are treated as a part of the care team and not a number.

An example of activites performed by our Brookdale Hospice Volunteers are

- hand massage

- reading to a patient

- talking about the persons life and sharing your experiences with them. Many times people on hospice care want to talk about their hobbies, pets, family, and life events.

- the volunteer can bring their pet to brighten up the patients day

- bring in books about art or history and page through them together

- keep them from feeling lonely by spending a hour a week with them and go for a walk.
