Do you like to talk on the phone? Would you like to ease someone’s mind? Would you like to volunteer from home?

We have an opportunity for you! Check-In callers make 10-20 calls Thursday mornings on a rotating basis. Depending on the total number of volunteers, this generally means 1-2 times per month.

Calls are made to new hospice patients (one week or less) and their caregivers to make sure they have everything they need for the upcoming weekend. These families are new to hospice and may have additional questions. Your call gives families an opportunity to get those questions answered, affording them piece of mind.

Ideal candidate will have a pleasant phone voice, patience, good listening skills, and comfort with death and dying. Calls are made to assisted living facilities and/or private homes. Calling scripts are provided.

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

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.
