Seeking Hospice Pet Visitors in Arden Hills & Roseville! - (Cats and Dogs)
Optage the Service Division of Presbyterian Homes and Services
We are currently seeking pet visitors for hospice patients at our Arden Hills campus, Johanna Shores as well as Eagle Crest our Roseville campus. Do you have a friendly cat or dog that loves attention and to be petted? We have patients that love animals.
Both volunteers and animals have been proven to be effective pain management techniques for our Hospice patients.
Animals do not need to be certified therapy or comfort animals.
Please contact Jennie if you are interested in learning more. We hope to meet your kitty or pooch soon!

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.
