Music volunteers enhance the quality of our clients lives through music. Patients who participate in music sessions are said to have significantly improved symptoms of pain, anxiety, depression, and shortness of breath among other symptoms, therefore improving their overall quality of life.

We would love for you to bless our patients through your gifts of song and/or through your ability to play an instrument.

Patients often enjoy a wide variety of music. Once placed as a volunteer you would be placed with a patient at one of our 53 Twin Cities locations who share a passion for your area of expertise in music.

For questions please reach out to Caryn Osterberg at costerberg@preshomes.org

About Optage the Service Division of Presbyterian Homes and Services

Location:

2845 Hamline Ave N, Roseville, MN 55113, US

Mission Statement

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

Description

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.
