Hospice care is available for anyone with a terminal illness when his or her primary care provider believes they have six months or less to live.
Hospice focuses on the patient's comfort and quality of life. It is is a special way of caring for people with a terminal illness, their families and their caregivers. It treats the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient, while focusing on comfort and the highest quality of life possible (known as comfort care).
Volunteering with hospice has many rewards for you as well as the patients and families that we serve. We offer a variety of opportunities in 33 counties throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin, utilizing your special talents and skills.
Want to volunteer with hospice patients in your community? Come join us at Allina Health Hospice & Palliative Care!
Our volunteers offer companionship, help with errands, provide respite time for caregivers, assist with writing/reading and in many other ways support patients and families. Patients are nearing end of life and they and their family members greatly appreciate volunteer support! We are also looking for certified pet therapy volunteers, hair stylists and massage therapy volunteers. Allina's hospice patients reside in their own homes or residential care facilities.
