About

Offer support to patients with a life expectancy of 6 months or less for up to 4 hours per week. Opportunities include:

  • Companionship for patients (talking, reading, playing games, etc.)
  • Caregiver relief
  • Hand massage (training provided)
  • Light housekeeping (vacuuming, dusting, meal prep)
  • Running errands

Patients are located in their private home and facilities throughout the Twin Cities metro. You will be strategically matched with patients close to your home, and you get to choose which patients you want to visit. The time you spend volunteering each week is flexible and will be scheduled directly with patients and/or caregivers.

No medical experience is necessary. Health screening, background check, and training provided at no cost to you.
