About

The friendly visitor or respite volunteer provides socialization, companionship and support to Hospice clients by visiting, looking at pictures together, encouraging the client to share their stories and memories, reading or playing music for the client, doing crafts or art work together, or sitting together quietly just holding their hand. Some clients don't have family close by and the volunteer visits help them feel less lonely and provide ease of mind to loved ones and caregivers. Volunteers do not provide personal care to the client but they are an important part of the team by being present to spend time listening to clients and families. Our office serves clients in a 60 mile radius of Sauk Rapids. We particularily need volunteers in Howard Lake and the outlying areas. Pet visitors are also needed!
