ORGANIZATION: Tamarisk , Inc.

Tamarisk Logo

Tamarisk’s mission is to create a caring presence and a safe haven for the thoughts, feelings, and concerns of persons, and their families, faced with the end stages of terminal illness. At no cost to them, we attend to the patient’s non-medical needs, while simultaneously providing much-needed respite to caregivers.

For most of the families that Tamarisk helps, our service ends with the death of the ill family member. Our desire is to support them beyond this point by offering appropriate support (where invited by the family) for at least one year.

Duties of our bereavement coordinator could include:

  • Send 2 - 3 cards during 1st year
  • Include grief support group information in first mailing/card
  • Make phone calls where invited and be willing to visit if family desires
  • Follow up memorial invitation with a phone call
  • Consistent record keeping, communication, and follow up with Tamarisk program director
  • Follow up with families 2-3 yrs after loss with calls, cards and support as needed

Mission Statement

Tamarisk volunteers are a caring presence. We create a safe haven for the thoughts, feelings, and concerns of persons faced with the end stages of life-threatening illness as we attend to their non-medical needs. Our volunteers often simultaneously provide much-needed respite to caregivers, all at no cost to those we serve.(Minnesota).

Description

Our well-trained volunteers quietly enter the lives of persons faced with life-threatening illness by offering compassionate, life-enhancing friendship, often assisting with non-medical tasks or projects. In addition, we are able to provide much-needed respite to the caregivers who are coping with the relentless demands created by illness. Included under the umbrella of life-threatening illnesses are chronic life-limiting illness such as heart disease, Lou Gehrig's (ALS), Parkinson's, Huntigton's, and Alzheimer's; and acute life-threatening illnesses such as cancer. Tamarisk supports people of any age who may or may not be elligible for other services, and often supplements palliative or hospice care services.
