Optage service line

Presbyterian Homes and Services Hospice program (Optage Hospice) would love for you and your furbaby to come once a week or every other week for 30 min. - 2 hours and visit hospice patient(s) at your local Presbyterian Homes location.

Does your furbaby (cat, dog, bunny, or bird) love to visit with people? Do they not jump up, not react to loud noises and are able to listen to commands and provide people with love? If you answered yes to all three questions you and your pet are more than likely a good fit as a hospice companion. Animals do not need to be certified therapy animals to help bless our patients as a pet visitor.

Contact the Volunteer Coordinator with questions or to set up a meet and greet and talk more about what being a hospice volunteer entails.

About Optage the Service Division of Presbyterian Homes and Services


2845 Hamline Ave N, Roseville, MN 55113, US

Mission Statement

To honor God by enriching the lives and touching the hearts of older adults.


Optage Hospice provides compassionate care that focuses on comfort, quality and support for individuals with life-limiting illness, their families and caregivers.

Optage Hospice Volunteers can serve in their community at any of our Presbyterian Homes and Services locations.

For our volunteers, there are a variety of opportunities to assist with our hospice patients. Some examples are: reading; writing letters; painting nails or doing hair; household tasks; wheelchair walks; socializing; pet therapy; music therapy; message therapy.

Just as 1 Corinthians 12 talks about many parts, but one body, each of our volunteers have many jobs, but one purpose - and that is to give back some of the blessings they have been given. We can (and do!) count the number of volunteers who have served, the number of hours that have been given, and even translate those hours into dollars. What is truly immeasurable is the difference that each of the volunteers has made to the residents and staff members. Presbyterian Homes is known for our Christian culture and high quality of life. This reputation has been built and grown over the years due to the volunteers and how they have faithfully served.
