Companions' homesAnoka, NE Hennepin, NW Ramsey counties, MN 55304


Tamarisk volunteers provide regularly-scheduled respite for caregivers within the family and companionship for the patient. For approximately 2-4 hours a week Tamarisk volunteers assure the safety and well-being of the patient (companion) while the family caregiver is occupied or away.

During home visits, Tamarisk volunteer caregivers socialize, play cards and other games, share a movie or listen to music with the companion. They might prepare a light meal, run errands, shop for groceries, help with housekeeping tasks or read quietly to the companion while he or she rests. The companion's day to day needs form the agenda.

Tamarisk has seen a significant increase in the number of families contacting us for support this past year; we have families waiting for your help! Contact us now to begin the training process and join us for our next new volunteer event. Visit www.tamarisk.org for more information
