Our patients are terminally ill and living in facilities or their own homes. They may require respite so a caregiver can get out and get a break, visits, errands, light housekeeping, whatever is helpful as they care for their loved one. Or if they are in a facility, visiting for socialization and to help with isolation. We serve a 30 mile radius outside of Methodist Hospital in St. Louis Park, going into the western suburbs but also the southern suburban areas.
During Covid, we have our training on hold and hope to resume this summer. If you would like to be on our list to be contacted, please let me know. I would be happy to talk to you and be in touch as soon as we can resume our volunteering.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

We are a hospice program caring for patients at the end of their lives. Our volunteers provide respite for caregivers, companionship to our patients in facilities for socialization and attention, run errands, do light housekeeping, whatever is helpful to enhance the life of a person who is at the end of their lives and support their loved ones. Our volunteers provide much needed respite to caregivers if the patient is in the home, helping them to keep their loved one there and manage the day to day caregiving that can be extremely difficult. A volunteer does NOT provide a medical service, but rather gives some much needed TLC and listening at a very critical time in someone's life. We have been in existence for over 30 years, and the volunteers have always been an essential service that is greatly appreciated and needed by those we serve.
