Answering the door and phones
Assisting with a variety of household and deck tasks

While The Pillars is not configured to accept COVID positive patients, precautions are taken to protect staff, volunteers, patients and families. As such, surgical masks are mandated and must be worn at all times when in the house. Masks will be provided by The Pillars.

Mission Statement

Rooted in Judeo-Christian values, our mission is high quality, compassionate, cost-effective health care for the communities we serve.

Description

First Hospice program in Minnesota

HealthEast Hospice Care was the first Hospice program in Minnesota. We continue to be a leader within the Twin Cities community, proudly serving the six county metro area: Ramsey, Washington, Dakota, Hennepin and portions of Anoka and Chisago counties.

The word "hospice" dates back to a centuries-old tradition of preparing gifts for those about to set off on a long journey. Today, Hospice Care refers to an entire spectrum of services that focus on the unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of individuals who choose to live as fully as possible at life's end.

The definition of hospice is a philosophy of health care that affirms life and provides care and support for people facing a life-limiting illness. To us, it goes even deeper. People who’ve experienced HealthEast Hospice Care tell us we treat them like family. We focus on the quality of life, not the duration.

About Hospice Care

Our care team works with the patient and the family, emphasizing emotional, spiritual and physical well-being. We offer help and support so you can focus on your loved one. We consider Hospice Care honorable and meaningful -- and we truly understand the level of comfort and compassion you need during such an emotional and difficult time.
